Wrasse in Weir

Hey y'all I need to pick your brains.

My little sixline wrasse decided to explore the weir built into the back of my 75gal tank.

One of the problems is that the weir is equipt with 2 Durso Pipes and this is making it impossible to net the little guy.

Any thoughts?

You could always put the net at the bottom of the pipes (in the sump) and scoot him down that.

I had a yellow clown goby take a ride down the overflow and live in the sump for about a week.

When I got back home he got pulled down one of the Durso Pipe ending up in the refug. Lucky guy...he's back in the tank. Thanx for your help.
