You might try a miniature homemade minnow trap and see if he gets trapped.
I've seen both Augie Eppler and Wright Huntley post basic instructions.
Basically take a small plastic pop bottle, cut the top off right where it
narrows and then invert the top back inside. (Take top off, of course.) A
little gravel or sand for weight might be appropriate. I would think a
friction mount is sufficient for aquarium use. You could also use toothpicks
or maybe some filter floss to shim it in place if it seems loose.
I think Augie suggested toothpicks piercing the two. You could use a heated
thin wire (straightened paper clip?) to have starter holes. Hold by a pair
of pliers into a candle flame and then burn starter hole.
Good luck! Let us know how it works.
