    Default Pygmy Cories and Mystery Snails

    My daughter's Mystery Snail is named Speedy cause it was always so fast and active. I added four pygmy cories and it plays dead a lot of the time now. I find it on the walls near the top in the mornings so I know that it is fine.

    I do not ever see any signs of the micro cories paying it any mind though.

    I'm thinking of moving the pygmies into my 5 gal CPD fry tank and seeing if that fixes the problem. Has anyone ever heard of them eating swimming fry?
    If you plant ice, you're gonna harvest wind.

    I have a lot of pygmy cories in my 55g and in a smaller 20g tank. Never had any issues with them. There were a fair bit of fry from a guppy which I got by mistake with some plants. To my dismay none of the fish went after the mini guppy fry.

    Also fighting a pest snail infestation in 2 of the tanks and none of the fish have really bothered/eaten any of the snails.

    The snail is probably just being cautious. Probably more active at night anyhow.
