Once wrasse or clowns are removed he should bounce back fast. I had to removed everything from my tank and section a small area recently to catch a fish. They can be challenging.
sending good luck your way
Thanks! I have a feeling I'm going to need it lol

Do you have a friend reefer or lfs with a trap. Bait it with food and a little patience usually works. For stubborn ones I would not feed the tank for a day then bait trap.

I bought my fish trap years ago, the best £30 I spent on the tank. ;)
I'll call my lfs when they open and see what they have. Thank you for the suggestion :)

I've actually used my fish acclimation box as a fish trap more than an acclimation box! I tried a trick to capture a holy terror six-line wrasse. I taped a mirrored tile in one end of the box and within minutes, had every fish in the tank swimming in and out of the box (except the six line, of course). It took a few days, but the six line finally couldn't resist.

That is such a beautiful creature. What does the family think.
Ronan was saying how cute she is and petting and smooshing her through the glass this morning lol. Rod was watching her a lot last night, and he checked on her this morning, so I think he's at least a little interested. Evie was excited about her yesterday, but she's not awake yet, so I guess we'll see what says this morning ;Happy
