Whats the least stressful way to catch shrimp?

Hey guys

I need to do some sorting and culling in my pfr tank.

It's a 10 gallon tank and it's pretty heavily moss planted so fitting a soda bottle trap may be a bit rough

Would a net with food in it work well? I know that they swarm food whenever I put it in.

Would it be ok to sort them in a clear storage bin filled with tank water?

Thanks,

Drew

Place a small glass dish (Pyrex brand petri dishes work well as do cheap glass ashtrays from Walmart) in the bottom of the tank with food in it. When they swarm, remove the dish.

When I remove culls I do it while they go on a feeding frenzy. I use one of the 3"x 2" nets since its sooooo much easier to scoop a out then trying to use the small shrimp nets.
