I caught a fish!

While snorkling in the Keys, we picked up two Bo Gregory Damsels and one yet to be identified fish (Goby, Blenny or Sand Perch). We put the smaller Damsel and the "Goby" in the 55g and the larger Damsel in the 180g. After a very short while he got a bit to aggressive for my taste, so I decided to try the fish trap trick tonight.
Cut up a 16 oz Pepsi bottle, put some marbles and some bait in it and positioned it near the area where he was hanging out.

It took all of 15 minutes until he was trapped, one dumb Peppermint Shrimp got in aswell. He is now happy with the other in the 55g.

Was I lucky? or is it THAT easy to catch a fish?

Good job, I recently caught my baby southern stingray in a shrimp net.
