If you have a big enough hose you can maybe siphon him out

Its a big tank throw one of those metal traps in :-) Otherwise try dangling a hunk of worm or shrimp or something like that on a thread in front of him and try to get him to latch on and pull him out. Fish might go for it though and taking fish out of a trap might be easier. Madtoms are probably the only thing that could get in, maybe your sunnies.

Hello all, here's a totally different crayfish issue. I have a 110 gallon set up with an 8 inch longnose gar, a 3 inch pumpkinseed and a pair of 2 inch madtoms. I've noticed over the past few weeks that something has been doing some excavating but haadn't been able to figure out who or what.

Well last night, the mystery was solved. I have a three inch crayfish in residence! I have no idea how he got in there unless he came along with the gravel from the Susquehanna River way back in August. Now, how the heck do I get him out of there? He's a rather destructive creature and I don't think the gar is really interested in eating him. I also do not want to disrupt my rocks or plants. Any suggestions????
