    Definitely try to trade it in. Once they get a taste for coral, it probably won't get better. I have a blue damsel that has a "territory" and will attack anything I put in its territory. It completely shredded a mushroom once. Damsels are very territorial fish. It's too bad the blue velvets are so pretty :(

    There are lots of ways to catch rogue fish, you can try a trap made out of a 2-liter soda bottle, you can try just catching it in net during feeding time, you can use sheets of plexiglass to corner it, or you can use Yote's trick of a hook and fishline.
