It`s happened to me a few times. I had on fish in there 5 months before I found him. The only think you can do is put your hand down the overflow and catch him with the net or as I did and catch him with your hand. It might stress him out but he`ll get over it in a few days when he realises where he is and where he was.

Try using a soup ladel next time or a tube large enough to pass him through it with a siphon . Next cap the end of it with mesh tule (found at most craft stores ) and or you can use plastic canvis to cover it or egg crate a cage around it .. GL
