My partner and I will shortly be moving properties. Whilst the drive to the new place is not that far at all (5-10 mins), it means taking my neon tetras, harlequins and cherry shrimps and this will obviously require a bit of planning.
I understand I need to keep the gravel wet (to maintain the bacteria living on the surface).. is this correct?
I am concerned about catching the shrimps. I have no idea how many I have as one was pregnant when it arrived and they have been breeding ever since :) plus actually catching them is incredibly difficult given how fast they are.
With that in mind, could I leave them in the tank for the move? (If I left a small amount of water in with the gravel) or is this going to be impractical?
If not, anyone got any tips on how to catch the little buggers!?
