I've read time and time again that shrimp in general will try to go "upsteam." I bet the "food" is tasty in there too.

not out of the norm to catch shrimp inside filters.
all kinds of good stuff inside your filter for them to pick @.

Feed more protein, i feed blood worms every couple weeks. I would see me oebt doing this from time to time but since feeding bloodworms i have not seen it happen. They will also try to eat and kill freshly molted shrimp if enough protein is not fed.

Sometimes a pellet of food doesn't satisfy a creatures urge to destroy and eat another creature. Bloodworms are a good idea. Or just let them eat the ramshorns, no love loss there.

I would just let them eat it but I'm trying to breed out the ones I have. Red, blue iridescent, and pink, and blue ramsphorns, not everyone likes them but I do plan on posting some in the sales thread. Especially the blue iridescent ones.

There are worms in the substrate why don't they hunt those down instead of the snails?
