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.
Drain as much water as you can and then move the tank and put the same water (better if you only put 75% back in and change 25%). Any time I disturb the tank I try to do a water change. It's really as easy as that.
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.
