    What is the easiest method to catch and remove a fast bugger?
    Without going into taking all the live rock out.

    I used a extra glass pane in slide that in from the top, and I divide the tank into two. Then I chase him to the divider and he can not see it, he tries to swim straight, giving me enough time to catch him.

    But I have to take off the canopy, all the lights, all (almost) live rocks on one side (to chase him out) of the tank to do this job.

    IS there an easier way?

    i also do it like you did, but i use egcrate.

    or you wait until he sleeps when lights are out then you catch him with your hand, i did this a couple of times and it worked( make sure the room is also dark)
