YES!!! Fishkeeper: 1, Damsel: zero

I FIIIINally got my damsel out of my tank today after about 3 days with a homemade trap. This little terror of a fish has killed 2 firefish, a royal gramma, and 2 green chromis. I will now be able to add small fish! He is now sitting on my kitchen counter in a plastic coke bottle. I hated this fish so much that I was considering flushing him, but I guess I'll turn him into the LFS...(maybe they'll flush him.) SWEET.

I just cut the top off of a 1liter bottle, cut an opening in the top, inverted the top, and put it back into the bottle. I used a ziptie to fasten the top to the bottle. I also put a rock in the bottle to keep it from floating around.
