Ok guys I am moving within the next month and I have a 33, 10 and 5 gallon. I am sure I know how to move the fish but what about the shrimp??
I was thinking to take out most the water till about 2 inches in the bottom and cover it really good, while keeping the shrimp in the tank. I have lots of new babies so I won't be able to catch them all. Ps the shrimp tank is the 10 gallon.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

when i moved, 29 gallon tank, i emptied it almost completely, left about 4 inches of water. Bagged off the top so no water splashed out, packed it in the truck last, and took it out first so the sand will settle again. I lost no fishies. Everything remained in the tank, shrimp, fishies, plants and drift wood. your goal is to leave as much water as possible that you and your helper can carry (for the whole distance. That 4 inches of water had me (construction worker), and a driver for purolator strugging (lots of steps.....).
