    I tried a few methods to remove from my system a very aggressive domino.

    You can try the 2lt coke bottle method... Personally this did not work for me.

    What worked for me was a size 22 specimen hook, from Bazil Manning or any other good fishing store (remove barb so to not injure fish) and some very fine monofilament line... Put some prawn as bait on the end... You will have that fish out in under two minutes. Unless he is sick...

    Cheers, I have considered trying this. Problem is that is'nt the only fish in the tank, a baited hook will be eyeballed and chomped in seconds by whoever else gets there first

    Yea... That's why you keep the line short and only in front of the target.... I assure you..
    It's the most efficient way...
