Shrimps / Snails

Postby Phil_GT » Tue Aug 08, 2017 4:56 pm

Hi there all.

Please can you advise if I would have any problems adding Cherry Shrimp / Snails to my tank with the following fish in there

3 x Mollies
4 x Black Phantom tetra
5 x Cardinal Tetra

Also regarding snails, we once ended up with a tank full of little tiny snails, think a couple hitched a ride with a plant we got from pets at home and they overran the tank.

Is there any snails that do not breed / limited breeding that look fancy? (well as fancy as a snail can)

Never kept cherry shrimp so don't really know the answer to that....but I do have Amano shrimps in my tank along with cherry barbs and X ray tetras.....but these are bigger than cherry shrimp and a lot less likely to fit into a fishes mouth.
I like snails do not mind them at all but at the moment I have Nerite snails they do not multiply either..there are others to pick from go look see whats about and ask about there suitability.
