I tried that soda bottle gizmo and had utter failure. The fish didn't go near it.

I bought a "fish corral" on liveaquaria.com. I haven't used it yet. It appears like a good setup. I hope to use it when moving fish from the QT into the main. Plan is to start using it a week before the move by placing food into the corral during feedings. Hopefully the fish will get used to going into the thing. On the day of the move, once the fish go in, I'll close the corral door on the fish and move 'em into the main tank.

We'll see.

I used one to catch cleaner shrimp. My regal tang went in it once, realized she couldn't get out and FREAKED! I was too funny. Mommy was right there to rescue her. Hope that works out for you.

I'm trying to get a damsel out as well. First tried using a large clear water pitcher as a feeding station. Over the last two weeks I could have had everybody in my tank except the damsel. Today I slid a piece of clear plexi between the front of the tank and the rock work., flush with the side of the tank. I positioned a piece of eggcrate to be swung like a trap door.
Here is the kicker - I placed a large hand mirror into the compartment to lure him in for an attack on the "other damsel". He is ticked - but won't fall for it. The good thing is that he is so busy being mad that he is leaving everyone else alone.

However, my decorated goby has been sitting in front of the mirror for over an hour now. If I ever need to remove him, I now know how to get him out of the rocks.
