MTS friggin suck. They're neat snails while alive but I find my shrimp can't easily eat them.

be careful. i wouldnt add so many snails in at once. In a nano, the amount of bacteria converting the nitrogen cycle may not keep up with the sudden surge.

I think if you get a more mature Amano you should be fine. Amano Shrimp are quite a bit larger than most other dwarf shrimp and wouldn't be a likely meal.

If you want to see a frenzy pick up some AZOO Max Growth or Max Breed; my shrimp (all varieties) can't get enough of it; they turn their nose up at most other prepared foods I give them (but they will eat fresh veggies).

The AZOO food is just easier to feed and does not cloud the water which is why I primarily prefer it to vegetables.

Great looking shrimp, and tank is looking good too.
