When I had to catch 2 Sergeant Majors in my old 135, I used sticks and various kitchen utensils, to block as many of the caves as I could. Even though it still took almost 4 hours, the blockages threw them off their game just enough. I did have to move some rock too, but finally got em'!!
Gladly given back to the LFS!! They both had gotten over 3", and we're tank Pirhana!! That was my first and last dealing with Damsels.

no worries nu-nu, i've calmed down a lot, after a few beers and some time all is well, i just concerned with the overall health and look of my maroon. although the damsels are amazing looking im not willing to have them run my tank, not being able to add any more fish. i've also employed my GF and were getting a game plan going!

Yes they do... My fish had torn fins and they healed in 1 day. Just make sure your water is very clean

Ok, success! I caught one, and left the other one in. Now he thinks he owns the tank! but he is not as aggressive. One step at a time, and my LFS took the fish now its someone else's problem!
