Removing a fish

Was wondering if anyone had an effective method of removing fish from a tank without removing all of the LR. I have a 29 gallon with approximately 45-50 lbs of LR. I have a Klein's butterfly that I am trying to remove (just not fittin in with the other occupants.) If I have to remove all the LR, I can (would rather not, as my reefscape looks great & would probably not be able to get it back to the way it is), but just was curious if anyone out there had an easier method.

You could try a fish trap. The trick is trapping a particular fish.

You can start training them to eat in one corner, adding only small amounts of food that they hve to come there to get it... and buy an extra large white net, just lay the net in there so they get used to it for a few feedings or until you see they arent weary of it.... It has worked for me numerous times Good luck!
