Problem fish

So i have this damsel in my tank that is a terrorizer. Everyday its getting worse and i want to get him out of there. Its impossible to catch him with a net and i dont want to take all the rock out. does anyone know how to Make a inexpensive trap or maybe where i can get a cheap trap on the internet. Thank You Much.

They make traps even though I dont think they are cheap. I just bit the bullet when I had to get my coral munching angels out. I moved everything and put the ole net on them. I tried the trap that my LFS let me borrow but I did not have the patience. You might get lucky.

trust me, the best way in the end is to go after the fish with a couple nets. You very well may have to move some rock around (its a pain) but IME, it is the quickest way to remove a problem child.

I have heard the "inverted" coke bottle top works (I just made up the name).

Otherwise a rubber maid tub works great with water from the tank and just doe a PWC at the same time.
