I took back a pseudochromis after she started terrorizing my tang. Got $30 for her, not a bad trade.


Also, a clear fish trap, baited, with a drop lever door will work best to catch them. I found mine used at the LFS for $10

You can dump him in a fish bag or gladware. He will fight once you catch him so make sure he doesn't jump

I think he would be a good fish as long as you added him as one of the last fish. All fish I had before him he doesn't bother. Anything new is a dif story.
