    Yeah, tangs can not resist algae. I put the trap in the tank and an algae clip in the trap and half an hour all the tangs will be in the trap.

    I have one of these that I purchased from another online vendor....cant remember who right now...

    But it works fine. Just stop feeding the tank, and only put food in the trap. It will take about a week, but once the fish get used to eating from the trap, they will regularly swim in and out of it all day long.

    I stopped using the "door" as it took to long to close and the fish could escape. Instead I hang the trap just beneath the surface of the water and use a net to block the entrance/exit of the trap and "catch" the fish I want that way.
