Scoop the beta out.
If you really really have to move the berried shrimp, wait for a week or two after it got berried, especially if this is her first clutch. Berried shrimps tend to hide more than usual, in a heavily planted tank, it won't be easy and stress level will be too high.

|PortalMasteryRy||I've decided to transfer her but should I wait until the eggs get further along in the gestation period? How long is the gestation period anyways? I think she is 2-3 weeks in.|

I would try and scoop her up into a small cup or something and move her that way so she doesn't ever leave water.
I know how much my shrimp hate the net and being out of the water. Flipping around wildly and trying to jump out.

|iris||Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing. Sometimes my shrimp get so spooked that I'd be afraid to risk the chance of a mom dropping her eggs out of stress. Is it a just a quick net and dump (well, place gently as possible) process?|

Berried RCS - Can I move it?
I finally have a berried RCS. I just saw her yesterday and she had a clutch of maybe 30+ eggs. I have a breeder box ready with just 1 juvenile SAE and some tadpole snails. The Breeder box is heavily planted and I was wondering if it is ok to move her. I plan to move the SAE to the main tank.
My main tank is 10 gallon heavily planted tank. Hiding places does not seem to be an issue but I do have a female betta in there which I know will get into every spot she can fit in to find food.
If moving here is an option for me then what is the best way of doing it?
