How do I catch this guy????

Came back from vacation and noticed a small goby was missing...I figured he died. Was under the tank cabinet looking for a scrubber and saw something in my sump...it was the little goby....who has gotten a bit bigger. How in the heck can I catch him without having to dismantle everything in the sump? Any suggestions on how to rig up something to catch him? Any ideas on how he got in there???? I think I should call him Nemo

He most likely jumped the overflow and was sucked down there. You could try and corner him with 2 nets and catch him. If that doesnt work you could probably trap him with an easy trap made out of acrylic or a 2-liter bottle. Trapping him might be easy since hes probably pretty hungry. Put some food in the trap and see if you get lucky and he goes for it.
