My shrimp is stuck in one of the smaller portions of my all in one. Net obviously doesn't fit down there. Any ideas? Thx.

Turn the return pump off so that the water rises in the back chamber, he may swim out or at least hop into a larger chamber where you can net him.

Maybe entice him with a tiny piece of food.

Probably your best bet. I never had to do any of that but Im also a smaller female so Ive got smaller hands. Usually I just flick my fingers at it at the bottom and when it swims up scoop him!

Any filter floss you can cut into a narrow strip and maybe let it climb up?
