Removing Live Rock

I am trying to remove three damsels from my 75gal tank. I have over 100 lbs of live rock, with mushroom and some other soft coral. I can't catch the bleedin' fish, even with a trap (2 liter bottle inverted) I don't want to remove the rock, but don't see another solution. Damsels have been eating pellet food, mabey they'd hit the trap with somthing else. TIA

Man that is a lot of work for $8.00 bucks worth of fish. I feel the pain. Has anyone invented a mini fishing pole with a size 36 hook? Just make sure the hook is barbless and in two minutes there out, less stress on you and the fish. jk

I had to catch 4 of them little suckers! I bought a tank devider, and placed ot on the tank. Then I moved all the LR from the side the fish were on to the other side. I just placed it where I could get it without harming any coral, and such. They had nowhere to run. Easy to net then.
