Shrimp and back to school

So I am leaving to go back to school at 6 a.m. Friday morning and really don't want to have to try and mess with catching them all in the morning or having to get up at 4 to put a trap in the tank. Could I catch them the night before and put them in a bucket with an air stone so it will be easier to catch them in the morning?

Definitely catch them the day before. You'll save stress for yourself and for them.
Yeah when shrimp are shipped to you they are in the bag for 2 days or more sometimes. They will be fine.
remember to put some gravel and plants from the tank into the container with the shrimp.
add some plants with the shrimp....are you by chance from the RGV "the valley"?
Nice one jon! Hope you and the shrimp are settled in now
