How to catch a Sally Lightfoot crab

I have a 226 gallon tank and my SLF Crab is getting big and aggressive. It has eaten all my peppermint shrimp and two smaller cleaner shrimp. I see it trying to grab my pygmy angel and my watchman goby all the time.

I have tried a bottle with the top cut off and ziptied back on upside down. It seems like the crab knows not to go in I put in a raw shrimp and a piece of nori and he just sits right in front of the opening (almost as if it is taunting me) I want to put it in my sump with the live rock rubble but I cannot catch it.

Has anyone used the X-terminator trap? Any other suggestions?
