Simple Way to Net Dwarf Shrimp

A question that I am asked often and see posted on forums often is “How do you catch Dwarf Shrimp?”

When attempting to catch Dwarf Shrimp, if not using a proven technique, it can be quite a pain because Dwarf Shrimp can be fast and quite agile. But using this simple technique it is very simple to catch a large amount of shrimp or even target a specific shrimp.

Step 1
Drop a piece of sinking shrimp food (such as Hikari Shrimp Cuisine) as close to the front glass as possible.

Step 2
Allow time for the shrimp to gather around the food

Step 3
Slowly insert net behind shrimp, putting the shrimp between the net and glass.

Step 4
Move net toward shrimp and scoop up as many as needed.

The shrimp will normally be distracted by the food and are usually easy to catch. I tend to scoop under the shrimp just on top of the substrate and it seems to work VERY well.

Good luck!
