These turtles eat the fish. They won't bite the plants unless the fish and ghost shrimp supply is low, and even then I'm pretty sure its just to send me a message because they don't actually swallow what they bite off. They are just hatchlings hanging out for a while until they go back to the breeder. Yes they are snappers ;)

Comments: This is my second planted tank build. The last 3 years have taught me that consistency is the key. Weekly water changes, weekly filter media changes, and weekly trimmings make this an easy thing to balance. That and running my co2 full time instead of just when the lights are on.
