Are those shrimps attacking the snails?

lol, it looks like a stand-off doesn't it? they were all "sharing" a piece of algae wafer.

Very nice! What kind of shrimp and snails are they (for the newbs in the crowd)?

oops, guess that is pertinent information. They are red cherry shrimp and pomacea brigessi (mystery/apple/brig) snails.

I love my Red Cherry Shrimp. Check with Algenco to see if there is any more for sale. I love the ones I bought, very small though, would need serious cover if you're keeping them with fish. I have them in their own 10 gal.

The Snails in msjinkzd's post are nothing like I've seen. They are really cool looking.

Thanks for the compliments and your ghost shrimp are great zeon. I am getting yellow shrimp soon and I am very excited about it! I am also breeding those brig snails and hope that I will have babies to sell by spring! Hopefully my purple stripes and magenta stripes will breed true..cross your fingers for me!

If you look in the last pic with the snail on the glass, you can see he has a shrimp hitchiker. LOL Too cute! I wish I could have shrimp. My fish would kill them. : (
