Help - fish in corner overflow

I thought I had lost my Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse after not seeing him for the past 4 days. I had just finished putting the purple firefish back in the main tank after 6 weeks in the QT when I noticed something swimming in the corner overflow (this is a 125gal AGA with 2 corner overflows). It was the 3" Carpenter's Flasher Wrasse.

The tank is covered (I leave the front panels open) so I have no idea how he got in there. He is about 3" long. I don't have a net small enough to fit in the overflow of course there is the PVC pipe in the middle.

Any ideas on the easiest way to get him out with the least harm?

Thanks.

Seymour

Buy a smaller net and pull the pvc out. When you take the stand pipe out, the fish may be sent to the sump, so be prepared for that. Once that is out of the way you should be able to heard it to where you can catch it.
