wanting to switch shrimp/fish tanks

the problem im having is how to go about catching all of the shrimp? should I just pull out all of my plants as gently as possible and catching them that way? I have been wanting a rescape.

Probably, turn off all filters and pumps. It will probly get a bit messy and it might be wise to vacuum after everythings out.

Save that water if you can, tiny shrimp can be easily overlooked in cloudy/turbid water.

finally finished. holy moly my feet are killing me right about now lol.

The fish are enjoying their larger tank and the shrimp are hopefully enjoying their smaller tank, ha. They have lots of moss and plants though, of course!
