I"m never going to catch these fish

Well after watching my tank a ton the last couple days I've noticed my bi-color blenny and my flameback picking at my SPS's. So I've been trying to get them used to have the net in the tank but I"m there is metal under the green plastic and it's starting to rust so I"m afraid to leave it in there. I've tried netting them but can't even get close.

I guess I"ll try the 2-liter bottle trick but don't know if it will work....

My blenny loves going into little holes so I think I may make a little PVC tube and tie a piece of fishing string to it so if he goes in I can quickly yank the tube with him in it out of the tank.

Wish me luck, I know I"m gonna need it

I was just in the same boat with my Flame angel. It developed a taste for some xenia (good thing I have a ton) and some zoos. You just need to reserve yourself to the fact that you are going to make a mess. I ended up tearing apart my entire reef trying to catch it. It is a pain in the a$$, but needs to be done. Get it over with. You will feel much better.
