For the past couple days I have been trying to catch an agressive coral nipping damsel in my tank. :angry: He is so quick! I dont want to mess up my rockwork because I really like the way it is right now and how my corals are placed. Is there any homemade traps you guys reccomend? This fish also flings sand all over my rocks I hate damsels lol.

i do all fresh water fish with my hands, and the smaller ones with a very small net. you have to be quick. and you may need to take some rock out, maybe put in a divider so u dont have to rip up the hole tank. i also find when i feed live ( i get very very small feeder fish, so small u will never find them in your lfs. ( i use convict fry. a week after birth.) but i use the net to put the fry in, so the fish swim into the net. i pull it out, and grab the fish i want.
