DIY Trap?

I have a Clarkii Clown who has killed my Red Sea Star now I am looking to catch him, because he is also becoming agressive toward the other fish. I have tried the bottle method with zero sucess in 3 hours of haveing it in. Are there any other DIY traps that someone can please give me the blue prints for? If so I would reall appriciate it TIA.

3 hours is not going to be enough time. Put some raw meaty food in trap and leave it there for a few days. dont feed him in the mean time. if the opening is big enough for him to get in, you should have him pretty quickly. make sure its a clear bottle and you have removed the lable.

Alright I will wait when you say "Raw Meat" what do you suggest I tried the pellets I feed them but he usually goes up top to get them and the trap is on the bottom. Let me know thanks.

I would suggest getting some krill. Freeze dried or frozen will work. Put a small rock in the bottle to hold it down, and a couple of pieces of krill in with it. It will be able to smell it....with you not feeding, it should be irrisistible.
