I learned the same trap in boy scouts many years ago as a kid. Used it on it's side in creeks to catch all sorts of goodies.
Shrimp and snail junkie... What can I say, I like the little things in life.

You put the food in 1 and shove it over 2 so now the only opening is the whole underneath as this is pushed into the substrate slightly the only way for critters to get in is underneath the bottle via the substrate - fish and shrimp cannot possibly get in. The critters will crawl in via the substrate underneath and crawl up into the bottle neck (2) and then into the bottle bottom (1) to eat the food. To remove you just turn it upside down in the water and pull it out... all the critters are trapped inside (1) with the food.
I hope this makes more sense Gemini...otherwise PM me and I will take some more piccies for you
To put it in the tank just slightly put it on it's side until it fills with water and then push it slightly into the substrate - the food inside cannot escape as it is inside....
Anyone else tried it yet? Curious what everyone else found in their tank
