They're offspring/mix from several lines. Shawn, Benibachi, some from Taiwan.

Also added a couple of German PRLs several months ago but I have no idea if they ever bred.

That brings me to a question for you mods. I noticed recently that people have somehow been able to post in FS threads. How do they do that???

Some threads can receive comments because new site ownership is attempting to make changes to allow comments to be left without bumping threads.

Sweet. You'll be hearing from me sometime between Christmas and the New Year.

Will I ever be able to break my Cherry Shrimp from murdering young Pond Snails?

No matter how much protein I offer them, I always catch them just cold murdering snails. Yes, this for real happens. And they're not sick snails. Not already dead. There are shells littered across the tank.

I think I'm the only person who complains about losing Pond Snails. But I've been trying to breed these snails selectively for a couple years. Guess it's time to move the snails to a shrimp-free tank.

I gotta say Jake... If this weren't kinda funny it would be sad. (or the other way around!)

I never heard of Neo shrimp killing snails without them being sick or dying. I am new to this hobby, but does this happen a lot or is this just random for Neos? I plan on keeping different snails with mine in the future once I get the tank started next year.

There are a couple other members who have observed it.

I'd say it's highly random. But this particular tank is driving me nuts with the snails. It's never large snails - only the small ones.

My neos do not kill my ramshorn projects, but they do kill bladder snails, no matter what size.

I don't know what it is either lol

Is a crazy thought, innocent shrimp killing slimy snails.

Thinking there is an excellent reason for setting up a new tank, though!

I can vouch for Jake here, my Cherries love baby snails too, doesn't matter if they're ramshorns or pond or MTS, they will actively go after and attempt to devour snails that they can pick up.

That's why I selectively breed spotted blue ramhorns in a 2g now. :3

I'm also finding small Ramshorn shells littered about as I lift up moss and cholla. Greeeaaaaaat.

Snail murderers.

I have translucent shells because blues are clear, if I had enough it might make a neat substrate. :3

The solution: Moving breeding snails into my Endler tank. While the Endlers occasionally eat snails, they don't murder nearly as many as my Cherries.

Heck, I've got a new Dwarf Puffer that seems to kill fewer snails than those shrimp.

It's becoming obvious that I need to move some of my Cherries to my Crystals Only bookshelf tank. It's being taken over by snails!
