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!?
Keep any of your substrate wet as well as your filter and anything else that may have beneficial bacteria growing on it. Good luck with your move.
Provided the tank is small, you can move it with the substrate and a couple inches water. Slide it onto a sheet of plywood or particle board (after it has been drained down) and carry it by that, not the tank frame as this can easily break a seal or crack the glass due to shifting even slightly of the tank frame.
