Do Tiger Barbs eat snails?
Would tiger barbs eat Malaysian trumpet snails?

the tiger barbs in my tank don't bother with the snails a bit.If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

My tigers peck at them but thats just because they are curious as to what the moving thing on the glass is. They, however, don't attempt to eat them.55g: Future home of a green terror and 2 convicts

I doubt it, you can try crushing them and then seeing if the barbs will eat them, but IME, mts are the hardest little snails out there."Mommy, do you picture me as a naked chicken?"
