Have you tried 2 large nets on both sides and slowly drive him upward of water until he is on top of both nets?

They do push some buttons. Mine swam into a rock with a bunch of holes and I took the rock out quickly. Good luck!

Lol I hate them also, my old tank I took the rocks out they were in. They turned my sailfin tang, into a half sail tang. That was a long time ago before I got old lol, I will never cycle with them again!
