DIY Bristle worm traps

Postby Macca_75 » Tue 02 Jul, 2019 10:14 am

OK- I have many, many, many bristle worms.

There are a few DIY idea's online but hoping to spark a bit of interest. Does anyone have pictures of their DIY traps that have worked for them? How would you improve your DIY trap to make it work better?

Either a link to a thread or even better a picture here.....

Works like a charm. The block in the center is a magnet so I can move it to the bottom without putting my hands in the tank.
I can send you the STL if you want.

Thanks but I don't have a 3D printer.

Looks easy enough to make out of spare 40mm plumbing though - small length of pipe and 2 end caps. Drill holes in the side.

I don't know why I thought you had one. I must have confused you with Lachalan.

This seem to be easy to build.
