Catching a fish

Does anyone have any tips for catching a fish without having to move my LR or know where I can get a fish trap?

Thanks,
Keith

Feed them, then WHAM when they come to the surface. That is ofcourse if it's a surface feeding fish.

What kind of fish? In my experience, different techniques work for different fish.

The type of fish is of course probably one of the hardest to catch (from what I hear). A wrasse. It became too aggressive with some other fish in the tank.
