This trap will help you get rid of these pests by using a release sensitivity adjustment to trap shrimp crabs inside. X-terminate the problem with the X-Terminator.

Or If you have live rock in your aquarium, you may have introduced predatory hitchhikers like mantis shrimp or crabs to your tank. Cues are mysteriously missing fishes and strange clicking noises from the vicinity of your rocks. These pests can be difficult to remove without harming other organisms in your tank, especially sensitive reef tanks.

The Xterminator trap uses a mechanism sensitive to the slightest movements to trap these tiny menaces without interfering with larger organisms.
