Sorry I just pictured you fishing in your aquarium.

I made a trap with clear PVC but this will work. Get a clear 2 liter bottle and cut the bottom out of it. clean all the label off so it will be nice and clear. Attach a dial rod or similar to the bottle with a ty-wrap around where the cap normally goes. Hold the bottle in your tank by the dial rod a few inches off the bottom. squirt food softly into the bottle through the threading opening. The fish will bump into the bottle trying to get the food but will figure out to go under the bottle to get it. Once the one you want is in the bottle just push the bottle down to the bottom and then put a net under bottom of bottle and pull bottle out with net over bottom.

get a Gator aid bottle cut the top off. Turn the part that look like a funnel around and stick it back into the remaining part of the bottle. Put some type of bait in the bottle then fill it with your aquarium water. Once the fish swims in it will not be able to figure out how to get out. Work great for me Keep me from tearing up my tank and less stress on the fish.

Yeah...What he said. I guess that is what happens when you are typing and dialing numbers and talking on the phone.
