    Default catching my shrimp?


    0 Not allowed!
    so im upgrading my shrimp to a 10g tank, but that leaves me with the question on how to catch them all. last time i counted i had 24 babies hanging on the wall and im guessing countless others hanging out in the java moss.... any ideas how i should go about catching all the small shrimp? i was maybe thinking a snail like trap for them, empty the tank of all decorations and just wait but the problem is the 5.5 has all the items i need to get the 10g ready. i think im going to try to salvage the sand as well but i might not because my black sand is turning white. any advise on catching the babies?

    Maybe make a food trap, put food in a net and then scoop them out. Or suck them out with something, not sure if anything will suck them up without damaging them, though.

    Gen how can you not have seen this? I bet I have posted it a dozen times myself.

    Use it, It works.

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    actually i never did see it as a shrimp catcher but that is what i was considering for the trap lol.... problem is idk how many will run into the trap because theres PLENTY of algae on the walls i let it grow for them to eat but its getting a bit outa hand (why im upping to a 10g less watts/gal that way and im hoping less algae....)

    I used a small glass to catch my shrimps. When they are spooked they swim into the glass. Do not chase them, just wait for the shrimp to go into the glass and scoop up.
    Then place the glass into the other tank and let shrimp go.

    So many different ways to try to catch baby shrimp. A bottle trap will work. I use a brine shrimp net, it's like a regular net but the mesh on it is finer. You could use a gravel vac to suck up the shrimp into a container. Another thought is to use a turkey baster, they an work rather well in catching very small shrimp.
