    I decided to make my own and just finished gluing 3 of them together. I still need to glue in the air line and am waiting on mesh fabric from Florida Aqua Farms to cover the outlet. I am going to make a lure that runs off of 120 current so I can control the snagger with my APEX.

    Gobies, clownfish...............................................................shrimp. There are many designs and this one seems very popular.

    I have a spawning pair of gobies and they should hatch at about 2 hours after lights out. They are in a live rock cave and I cant get to the eggs to remove them. So I will set up the snagger in their tank and put the lure just outside. I will have the APEX turn on the snagger and the lure for 2-3 hours each night and one morning I may have a bunch of snagged fry.

    I have several pair, but only the one that is in a live rock. They are Neon Blue. I have a pair of Neon Yellow in another tank. Then two pair of clowns.
