Question about Damsels

Does anyone know a good way to catch damsels that you dont want in your tank anymore? I tried the 2 liter bottle trick and it doesnt seem to work for me.

The hook and line is what I use. No need to rearrange rock or stress other but the most aggressive fish. I acturally did that before Fenner but all's good that ends good. Two cheers for barbless hooks.

Thinking about what you said about Damsels, Pease past on the need or not needing "DAMSELS" to cycle your tank. A couple of frozen
shrimps is all you need to cycle a Marine tank....

I did not use them to cycle my tank. I got them from somebody for free on craigslist, and they are bullying my bi color angel so that is why i want to catch them.

For aggressive fish the hook and line is the best way to get them.
