getting a snowflake out of my tank

I want to remove my snowflake eel out of my 28 gallon nano into a 80 gallon tank. Any ideas. I have a RBTA and a saddleback clown in the tank with him and that is it. Should I remove the rock and use a net? (I can borrow a big net from my LFS) Any experience with this would be great.

You could make a trap out of a 2 liter bottle and put a shrimp or squid piece in there.

Eel may be too big for the trap

Mine was a baby but I put all my rocks in the middle and left him no hiding places.

Oh yea. Hmm u could tie fishing line to a piece of squid and when he comes out to eat it net him. I've even seen people straighten out the barb on a small fish hook and get fish out that way.
