damsel removal

Any ideas on how to remove a 3 inch damsel without taking tank apart? I've been using a trap for 2 weeks and it won't go near it.

I'd build a cave for the damsel to hide in then trap him in there

Ive had luck with leaving a fish net inside the tank for a few hours and let them get used to it. Then i took a turkey baster and shot some food in the net and it went right in lol.

Make a fish trip out of a one liter bottle(or what ever size works) its what I did for my blue-green chromis.... Here is a link to a YouTube video that helped me
Super easy to make. And I tied a string to it so I can pull it up soon as it swam in.
