Moving tanks...how

As the title says, I'm planning to move everything from my 15g to my 12g long. The fish are not the problem. I'm mainly worried about my hc carpet...probably not gonna make the transfer. But I also have about 300 various shrimp in the tank. Many of which are juvies. How do you manage to catch all the little buggers?

I would say a small net and a lot of patience. I had to do the same thing years ago with a ton of small fish and a really big tank. It took me about an hour and a half but I got them all.

I've heard putting an old soda bottle in the tank with some food in it works pretty well. I'll probably try that one.
