Hi Jason,

Why don´t you try out a simple method:

- Place a tank filled with system water alongside with the 
tank that you want to remove the marble from.
- Remove the fish first to the other tank, then remove the 
marble boxes and afterwards place the fish back into the 
original tank.

- The only "problem" is that fish will be hadled twice but 
as long as you have fine mesh fish nets, that will not be 
a problem for the fish, specially for their fins.
