billango Posted June 6, 2022 Share Posted June 6, 2022 So I'm thinking of getting some shrimp to add to my community tank, and I currently have a small/moderate population of pest snails. I really don't mind them at the population they are at which seems to have stabilized. I was just wondering if the shrimp I add will reduce this population. I feel like in theory it would because the shrimp can get around faster and probably will eat a little more than the snails, but I could also imagine the snails needing so little food that they could always find something. Has anyone noticed a tangible difference when adding shrimp to a tank in this regard? And also I know that food control is the best way to regulate the snail population. Again, I don't mind the snails at all with the population theyve established themselves at in my tank, but I'm just curious in general. Thanks!
