Has anyone used these planaria trappers?

Has anyone tried one of these traps? And if so, how did you get it to stay on the

floor of the substrate? How does it stay flat down on the substrate and not float

up? Also what did you use for food in the trap?

 

I could put some cut up hot dogs in it, or piece of raw shrimp, or piece of

turkey that you use for sandwiches, or piece of ham slice? Would any of

these work?

 

Do these work with the other detritus worms? and other kinds of worms?

 

Just trying to get some information on these traps and how to use them, and how

to get them to stay on the floor of the substrate. Any info I can on these.  I would

like to avoid using Fenben or any other chemicals.

 

I don't have planaria worms, but I want to be prepared in case I do get them.

 

Thanks, Doc

I have not used those, but I tried making one like it. It didn't work to well for me.

I ended up breaking down and getting a nag catch pen. Cheaper than gush but just as effective.

For bait I used hikari carnivore pellets. They work well.

Are you talking about these, Subtle Aquatics?

 

Also, will it catch other types of worms do, even the harmless ones?

 

Thanks!

Okay, thanks, but those are ones you are talking about though right?

I just want to make sure I get the right one and the right bait.

Yeah those are what I use. You can use any bait really. Whatever you feed your shrimp or fish is what they will go after. I just used those because I have them on hand. And didn't want to waste shrimp food on a nasty worm

Okay. I agree, so I could put some cut up ham, or hot dog, or turkey, or whatever in there, and

it would work okay too, right?
