Catching problem fish

So I had two 75 gallon tanks one predatory and one reef. My reef tank started leaking this weekend do I had to move everything over to the predatory tank (I was in the process of tearing it down sorta) so long story short I only had a jewel damsel in the predatory tank and when I moved all the fish over he was fine with the clowns and the kole but he hates my chalk bass.

How do I catch this damsel?!?!?! I have 130 pounds of rock in there

try trapping it at night. once the lights go out wait abotu 30 min then flip the lights on while its stunned and grab him. or if you can manage it with the lights out that would be better
