Welcome Tony! I'd take them back to where I bought them and plan on more research before purchasing next time. Just one possible approach...

If they are small you may have to do it the hard way. Empty the tank til there's just a little water left, remove the LR, then corner them and scoop them. A real PIA but it gets the job done when there is no other options.

I'm sorry, I misunderstood.

I agree with Krypt that you may have to break down the tank to get them. If you're not in an immediate hurry and can invest a week or so, you may try feeding thawed mysis from a brine net. Most fish will swim right in after awhile once they equate the net to food. Luckily for us they have a long term loss of short term memory.

Hmm, unlucky, have you tried tricking them into it with food?.. Although they might not be interested or your other fish might do it instead, but I agree with Krypt, it looks like that's going to be your best shot at it.
