While trying to catch Heterandria formosa in a lake choked with hornwort, I
netted two ghost shrimp and they are great additions to the tank. You
should see on of them playing tug of war with a Heterandria, the "rope"
being a crushed snail! Any way, outside of the same technique - dragging a
fine mesh dipnet through thick hornwort - does anyone have ideas about how
to net more of them?
