You might want to wait until midnight where the fish are usually quiet. At this time, it'll be easier to catch the fish.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

What about a fish trap? Just stick food in the fish trap and wait.

I use egg crate(well thats what we call it in OZ)to fence off half the tank, that way if I have to move LR or coral I only stuff up half my tank.
I'll take some pic of my organised chaos as I'm about to remove a Luna Wrasse.

Well I didn't use my plan of attack, was worried about shifting the Live Rock around so I got the smallest of fish hooks, squashed down the barb and put a bit of Krill on it. BAM!, 5 seconds latter the wrasse is in the bucket of water waiting to go back to where I got him about 2 years ago and 5 inches smaller.
the funny thing is now hes out all the other fish are picking at the rocks together calmly...I guess the big bad boss is gone.

I was just going to mention the use of tiny fish hooks until someone beat me to it. Only problem with that method is the possibility of getting the wrong one.

sorry clownfish88, this was what I use to corale the fish to one end of the tank then net them.

As an added FYI, in the States we also call that egg crate. It is sold in home improvement stores as a light diffuser for 4x2 flouro fixtures like in an office setting.
