When I bought my 90 gallon it came with a 12-14 inch Oscar. The guy had never taken the fish out of the tank so the only net he had to catch the fish was the little one he got when he got the tank. The fish's head barely fit it, and the guy grabbed it by the tail to get it into the bucket I had bought. Since then I always bring everything I may need when I buy a tank, including a water changer with sink adapters.

Betta are slow enough to use that process. I had one Black neon tetra (replacement fish from Petco) in a 1/2 gallon pitcher used to acclimate it. I could corner him but because the pitcher was cylindrical I couldn't net him easily . Finally it got tired of running so I was able to net him and get him in the QT. I dread having to net his five siblings in a 10 gal QT.

You have not chased many fish have you?
Aside from that, ever tried using a lure? Drop a bit of food inside the cup while it is in the tank and be patient.
