    That's a fun project for sure.
    I long ago had a pistol shrimp in my 37g in the basement; was able to catch the little guy and re-homed it. I remember swinging by Neptune's and bought some frags; one of the frags had a hitchhiker, a pistol shrimp... darn it.

    Bottle with a line. Bait it inside n set it right outside the burrow. Might work.
