I know a guy on another forum who took a tiny fly fishing hook with no barb, baited it with a mysis and caught the fish. Might be worth a shot. Better than ripping the tank apart.

That is an awesome idea! I may have to give that a shot...course I'll catch every other fish in the tank first lol.

My LFS had one of those fish traps for rent and i have used it a couple times. Put it by the fishes usual stomping grounds and wait a while. It took me a long time with one of the fish but it would probably take a lot less time then taking apart your tank. Plus i was able to watch tv while i waited. I would give it a shot before moving rocks around and all that.

You should call up your LFS and ask if they rent them out like mine. They usually keep them in the back or under the counter so you may not have seen it before.

Well....Some decisions have to be made. I have to catch this fish that is killing my corals. I'm not happy with how my tank looks, and I can't decide if I want to scrap the whole thing and just downgrade to the 24g cube only.

I've pretty much decided that I don't like the look of my rock and will be taking most of it out and re-aquascaping. I guess in the process I can catch the bad fish and send him off to live at his new home.

I really haven't been happy with this tank since I set it up. I guess a lot of that has to do with all the issues I went through getting to this point. Bad vibes are not a good thing in this hobby. I'm going to rehash some ideas and see where they lead. Not sure right now what the fate of the 120 will be. Time will tell.

Allen, I know it is your tank (and family) but.....considering all you have been through and the compliments that everyone ,including myself, have given you on the beauty of your tank. Work it out. You will again enjoy the BEAUTY that you have created. Good Luck with it!!!!!!!
