thanks for all the suggestions but I got the little bugger a different way. I may have smashed him with a 15lb rock. oops Twisted Evil thanks again and NEVER BUY ONE!!!


I would be concerned more about your tank in that case.

If he is still around, try use a small coke bottle (plastic or glass) filled with water, put some algae waffer in it and lay it on the side at the bottom, with the opening just above the gravel.

You will see it within a day or so. Use your finger to close the opening and fish out the bottle.
