how to catch a pesky chinese algae eater

Any ideas? Apart from stripping the tank??

It is totally picking on everyone and i almost never see modestas because, although i got dither fish(and now see them occasionally) every time one comes in sight the CAE chases them away. It chases male gourami too, but he chases it back, and female gourami is terrorised like modesta.

Have tried a food trap with pull uppable sides when he's inside, but as soon as you yank the cords, he's out like a flash..
