I was going to add... I have used a clear box put into the corner of the tank and use a net to force the fish into the box. Then simply remove the box. Usually this works with out stressing the fish too much and little removal of live rock.

Another way for future reference would be to do like I did to catch 2 yellow gobies. Now keep in mind these were VERY small. I took the clear tube that is attached to your aquarium vaccum and started a siphon. I had them sucked out in no time. They went to hide in between a rock and I sucked them right out. Didnt hurt these small fish at all.
