    You are going have to take out LR, you won't catch those buggers, I eventually had to wait for my new tank to catch my Domino.

    I tried everything - fish traps, leaving a net in the tank for a week. I even tried to jig the fish, no luck, they are just too intelligent, or being aggressive fish, don't trust anything.

    neon R50
    see article
    I spent 3 days trying to ketch yellowtail damsel. Tried 3 different DIY traps without any results and everything else you may imagine. Between setting traps I spent time on internet trying to find what worked for other ppl. Someone on RC suggested turning lights on after few hours they go off. I did as suggested and turned lights on around 2AM. All fish were very confused and disoriented. I had net and long stick so i pushed damsel with stick from rocks and ketch him with net. He was in separate 10G tank before he could figure out what happened. You may try this.
