Angry To catch a preditor (fish)

OK. So maybe a melanarrus wrasse isn't exactly a preditor fish but the one I have has been wreaking havoc on it's tank mates for a couple months (and I thought the title was catchy). I have tried various ways to catch him and all have failed. I tried to catch him with a net in the beginning but he kept on going into the rocks. The last attempt, I moved all of the rocks to one side of the tank and sectioned it off with some plexiglass to try to take away hiding spaces. He just burried himself. In an attempt to find him in the sand, I got the water so murky that I wouldn't have been able to find him if he came out anyway. Does anyone have any other ways or have any designs for a fish trap to try to catch him? I looked at LFS an nobody carries any type of fish trap. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...
