Just some tips, At least for me when replanting vals, it helps to trim the roots shorter, and snip off the runners. Also the shrimp might be easier to catch in bulk with a net, rather than the pop bottle trap to start with. I've had good luck draining most of the water from the tank (maybe an inch or less), and then gently tilting it, this causes the water to go to one end and concentrate the shrimp for you. I recommend this simply because every time i use a bottle trap, it takes forever to catch a large number of shrimp and i never ever seem to come close to catching them all.
