DIY Fishtraps

Does anyone know any easy household material fish traps? Need to get rid of pesky damsels, because they are a waste, and I got a new maroon clown So getting rid of 5 damsels will make a big diference

take a two liter soda bottle, cut the top off about 1/5 the way down where it starts to get real wide. Invert the top and secure it. Then place some food on the inside tied/netted to a rock and set the trap on it's side. I got my damsel and fireback in only a couple hours.
