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?

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?

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. :confused1:

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.
