wait wait wait, you misread me
I keep mystery snails with my cichlids, you can look in my 75 gallon journal
I want to try nerites though, but as of yet it is untested lol.
Don't forget either that cichlids can be individuals. My geophagus kept trying to eat the mystery snails for 3 days, then when he kept failing he just stopped caring about their existence and let me add as many of them as I want
what kind of cichlids are you looking at btw?
