When it comes to catching "problem fish" the fastest thing to do is get right after it. It will require the use of a couple of fish nets and the re-arrangement of LR, but it is the fastest way. IMHO, traps are a waste of time or take too long if they work at all. Take an hour, get the fish out and be done.

HI,
I knew something was up when the fish store said its best to start with one and asked about tank mates. Or food sources for the blue devil. He even attacks my little sally crab and she's a very grumpy little crab and shakes her claw at him like common down Ill fix you up..
Geeze cant we all get along..
My little clown fish hides on the left side of the tank with three green chromides. they are buds but mist blue like to beat everyone up every so often.
Doug

After I got my tank established, a 4 inch Black Volitan took care of THEM for me.

Removing my damsel ment re-aquascaping. Not fun. He also stressed out my clowns way to much and they ended up succumbing to Ich.

Good times. Now I know better. LOL

I have been having problems keeping clown fish alive. No problems with any other fish. I never thought about the damsel chasing them might be stressing them out and they end up getting sick. I have been testing water more frequently and doing weekly water changes using RO/DI water. I think I will try to get him out of the tank before I buy more clowns.
