Catching sick fish...

Does anyone have a good technique for catching sick fish that does not disrupt the entire tank. I really don't want to have to remove all of my liverock to get this guy out. I also do not want to stress out the rest of my fish.

I have seen fish traps at LFS and I have seen some pretty big ones so you might want to try that. I think they are about $30. Or use 2 large nets. You can use one to kinda herd him one way then use the second to scoop him. I have seen it done but I can't do it. Unfortunatlly to get my fish out I had to tear apart the whole thing... Sorry I can't be more helpful..

If the fish is still eating, you can try a diy fish trap. We have used it on several occasions and it has worked wonders.
