Not going so well

So here's an update on the 10 gal mixed shrimp tank. So I had 4 total berried shrimps... however it seems I might have 3? (1 with half egg sack, the other 2 are full and 1 dropped it all) so I freaked out and made my own egg tumbler? I just cut a plastic water bottle in half (ofcourse washed in aqua water and put a net underneath the cap area spooned the eggs off from the fluval stratum made a little hole to allow grips and put it near the outtake flow. So it somewhat resembles the mother fanning the eggs? (Not sure if this will work) it's 30+ eggs!)

Any tips or tricks? PS there has been a heatwave here in NYC (Very Hot and Humid) so tank went from 72* to 80*) I put ice/iced water bottles (it's not around 76-78*

So here at the pictures.

My 1st 10 Gallon Tank :D

Your shrimp look great! As your plants grow, you'll get a fuller scape.

I really hope so. I really want to use co2. I saw the DIY c02 thing. I bought the ista water plant 3 in 1 co2 diffuser. But.. I do not have a regulator? So I guess i'll have to save for that. I also don't know how much to use. I just want the shrimps to breed, make babies and not drop them :'(

I'm thinking of moving this to a Fluval Flora. 7.9 Gallon do you guys think that's a bad move? Or not enough space?
