For the first time ever


I've heard about it, but I've never actually seen my RCS take a live snail and eat it up.

I've heard of several other people witnessing this.

Odd phenomenon!

I've seen my supreme red and oebt munch on a ramshorn before. Started feeding blood worms once a month or so and have not witnessed it since. Boy oh boy do they go nuts for those blood worms lol.

Not that I believe. When they die, they unfortunately die in the substrate then the other MTS get to them there.

There are lots of babies, and I believe it was moving as it was picking at it.

I thought most foods we fed were too high in protein.. Hmmm...

Thanks for answering. Yeah shoots have sprouted up all over the tank. It must be happy. It doesn't even mind low light, oddly enough.
