You CAN catch him at night, but not with a flashlight. Let me see if I can find where I've written this before...
Yes, here it is. I need to add this to the Reefkeeping Tips. It comes up often enough.

btw, Bangaii are nocturnal. They cruise the tank all night. Observe them ahead of time in the dim light of a small weak flashlight or dimly lit room. You will see where dad spends his time and can prepare for the catch.

Just my old man opinion, but if you wait any longer you will miss the 10-15 babies there are and they will just become lunch. If it was me, I'd try to catch him tonight. You have a second chance tomorrow morning before first light. The babies will not hang in the toothpick urchin waiting for you to save them. (It's white, it's strange material and not dense enough.)
