I had t catch a couple domino damsels in my 200 gallon. Ended up taking out 70 % of the rock. Tried it all but damsels always outsmarted me. Now I think 3 times before adding fish to the tank.

Remove cap, put some food in bottle and fill with water - the damsels favorite
Punch a few small holes in bottle so it will sink
Since damsels are bold they should be first into the trap
They swim in and can't get out
It took about 6 hours for my dotty back to get bold enough
You can let bottle sink to bottom or perch it on some rock
Give it a try won't cost you much

I like it!!! Def. will be trying this next time.

My wife caught all but one last night while she was feeding them. We tried that several times but I guess they got sloppy. They are in their new tank (buddies tank) and waiting for the last one. Thanks for the advice guys!

Ok, last update! Had to remove 3/4 of the rock in order to catch this little thing. Man they are fast! Oh well it's all done. Thanks again for all the advice.

I had the same issue trying to catch my foxface to change tanks, out goes the rock, and my snowflake eel was not happy about it! I think my damsels will just have to stay for now!
