    Lower the water level, Way way way down.. And then lower it a bit more. Use two nets and use the smaller net to chase him into the bigger one.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    +1 to the above posts

    Maybe something along these lines might help as well

    If you search YouTube video titles for fish traps, you can find a few more ideas
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    even if you lower the water level wont the fish still try to hide in the rock? There is quite a bit of fish not just the two in the photo.

    I am positive they will, But you will likely get some of them before you have to start pulling rocks & you have nothing to lose by trying. You will probably end up having to pull at least the covering rocks to chase them out.

    It comes with the territory

    If you have lots of time and creativity you could also try trapping...
    Fish traps are easy to make with stuff lying around. Bait could be, depending on fish, food or a mirror. Make sure to attend the trap at all times to remove the caught fish before it potentially injures itself attempting to get out.

    Sidenote, this tank looks really cool with the large rocks! Would look better in a massive tank but I think the boulders make it more similar to the mbunas natural habitat.
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    If the fish are like mine they all come out at feeding time - try putting the food in the net - mine are so greedy they'll swim straight in

    The tank is not that big so I would probably pull the rock out and catch the fish. Good time to do some cleaning under the rock and clean the substrate, too. It won't take 5 minutes to remove the rock and less stress time for the fish to be chased around.
