what do you need to know ??? its from the bricchrdi species.. from lake tanganyika.. i think thay eat plankton... thay reach up to 4/5'' adult size... its caudal fin is a lyre tail and it has a thin ice blue fringe along all its fins.... thats about all i can think of hope it helps

i saw these at my LFS yesterday, they were small about an inch long

i dont think that they eat snails if thats your question, theyre omnivorous and eat flake and frozen foods mainly. Other than that, theyre from lake tangiyaka and thats all i know. hope that helps

I'd say it depends on the snails, and how hungry the fish are. MTS would be safe, but ramshorns or pond snails may well be on the menu.

I hate to disagree but they are carnivores.
In the wild they dine on small crustaceans, insect larva, and plankton. They will readily eat flakes and pellets but will thrive with the addition of mysis shrimp,krill, or brine shrimp added to this diet. I'm not sure if snails are crustaceans. I know crayfish are.
