I know, this is basically your original idea, but why move the adult shrimp at all?
I have been crossbreeding red cherry and snow ball for a good while now. I actually have some interesting results but nothing to drop the jaw(best i got by now is a red cherry with a nice white line from it's head to the tail and it's not the normal white lines you see on red cherry, it's a thick and strong white line that i have never seen on red cherry ever in my life, be it on the internet or in my aquarium). What if those small shrimps that the fish might eat are exactly what i am waiting for? It is a risk i rather not take.
