Peppermint shrimp or inject them with kalk paste. Is that the right wording? We make a paste out of ARGH...can't remember the name, but it's found in the picking section at Walmart and is in a green can/bottle. Then we put it in a medicine dropper and squirt a little right in the little bugger!!!

Yep, pickling lime. That's the stuff. Make it into a paste with some RODI water & drop some right in the middle of those babies! WHAMMO! I hate those things. They remind me of spiders and give me the ebie jeebies.

Peppermint shrimp took care of the little ones for me. Joe's Juice (Mrs Wages is cheaper) took care of the larger ones.

Pickling lime huh? I'll have to try that as well. I've been doing the boiling water in a hypo trick myself. It seems to work pretty good, I just have to stick and move pretty quick before they go back into all that expensive live rock I bought.
