Catching fish in a reef tank

Well, the barbless hook and line trick worked for the queen angel in about 30 seconds, but I had a more skittish fish that wouldn't go near it. An Internet search resulted in a poor-man's fish trap design. I cut the nipple off of a 2-liter bottle to create a hole large enough for the fish to go through. I then cut the entire top off the bottle, inverted it, and fastened it inside the large opening with a couple of twist ties. I put a rock inside as a weight and tied fish line to the twist tie. I added some food and put it in the bottom of the tank. It took a day before the target fish got hungry enough to go into the bottle, but when it started eating I pulled on the line and hoisted it out. WooHoo!
