Transporting established planted tank
I'm moving to a new place and this includes moving my 20 gallon long shrimp tank. It has a good number of Cherry Shrimp and PFR Cherry Shrimp of all sizes. It's got it's fair share of plants, everything from Wisteria to Crypts to moss.
I don't think I could take everything out without killing half my shrimp and making a huge mess out of a tank I finally got "right".
Can I empty it so that it only has maybe 4" of water and transport it like that? With the sand and shrimp still in there? It's a very short ride, only 15 minutes to the new place, and I already know where I'll be setting it up.
