Following up on kym's suggestion, I do this when I do the water change so the tank water is down half. But instead of two nets, I place one net in the water with my right hand (I'm right handed, so left may work better if you're left-handed) somewhere preferably in the front close to the left corner, then with my free left hand I gently and carefully maneuver the fish from the back around the side to the left front and hopefully into the waiting net.

Fortunately, I deal mostly with inverts..they are easier to catch. When I went to a LFS this guy had a good technique and i made a mental note. I have had a lep. a long time ago...depending on how big it is use a plastic bottle maybe he/she will fit in a 12oz coke bottle (just upgrade in plastic bottle to its size) after you cut the top of the bottle down to where the fish can swim into it, place it in it's safe haven..then chase behind it with a net then use the net to hold it in. I haven't tried it yet but it worked so fast for him.

Good Luck!
