Don't laugh but go fishing. The damsels are aggresive feeders so a pole with a barbless small hook and be sure to close all the drapes....
This worked great for me when I had three bowtie damsels that started to reek habic in my tank about 3 years ago. And no I used a fishless cycle.....

Also what do you think a reasonable price would be for someone to come twice a month to do water changes and clean the tank??
