I want to move my 15 gallon shrimp tank into my new stand. The shrimps have only been in a week so I don't want to mess up their water by taking too much out. What would be the best way to move it. The distance is about 6 feet.

Be sure to put whatever it is you're using to filter your tank into the old tank water to save as much as the bacteria as you can

put the water into a large tote container and move the shrimp with the tank. 15 gallons really is very little. I have moved a 20 gallon half full of water with no problems with the tank.
make sure to remove all the ornaments, logs or such that might fall over and hurt the shrimps of course.
