Vacuuming Tips with Shrimp

I recently put some ghost shrimp in with my tank, they are doing very well,my betta isn't trying to kill them!

I was wondering how people go about vacuuming with shrimp in their tanks.

my betta is pretty docile. like every fish, personality just kind of dictates what it can be housed with. It also helps that I keep my betta fed well!

I just suck them up, then fish them out of the bucket and toss them back in the tank.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

You can always put a netting over the vacumme that has bigger holes so the dirt and grim go throught without the shrimps. The fabric store sells the netting and it comes in different colors and is really cheap so you could get the smallest peice of it that they will sell you. I do not vacumme my tanks. I have pool filter sand and everthing just settles on the top and I just use a net to get the stuff.
