How to catch a fish!

I need to catch this minnow like fish! I believe he is a royal gramma or gamma! (half fuschia half yellow) He is getting beat up by another fish and he is going to be isolated for a while but I can't catch him. We stand at the tank for hours with the net while he darts in and out of rocks! Maybe there is a trick we don't know! Maybe someone has a suggestion?

You can try to construct a fish trap. The concept is the fish can easily swim in but gets disorented and cant swim out in time for you to remove the tap with the fish. You can then easily and relitivly stress free relocate the fish.

Above is a search with a few good designs and ideas.

Hey! We got a gramma too. He was getting beat up by a damsel when we first introduced him.
Please see my previous post: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewtopic.php?t=10000

It might be better to trap the more aggressive fish, instead.
