Hello all I wanna know what is the best way to catch a 6 line wrasse without taking apart the tank since most of my LR and coral is cemented in place? He is a little to aggressive to the smaller fish I add to my tank.

Thanks

fish trap or bottle trap.

i ordered a fish trap from bulk reef supply, then put food in it, and didn't feed the tank for a couple days. after hours of watching the tank, he finally got hungry enough to venture in to the trap, and i dropped the door.

you can also try the bottle trap too, but mine was very reticent to go near any foreign object in the tank.

I have had the best luck with draining and rapidly refilling the tank. If you drain down to about 2 inches of water, you are then able to limit the movement of the fish. Net and then work on refilling.
