Gammarus A Danger To Eggs/fry?

    I have a tank with sulawesi snails only that I use to raise my ricefish fry.
    I have moved a few eggs and one fry over from the ricefish tank and all of a sudden the fry is missing and I see a gammarus sit on the floating plant where the eggs are.

    Are they a danger to raising fry??? I read online that some people like to have in fry tanks since they eat leftover food, other people say they can be a danger.

    I have no idea where they come from and wouldn't mind them gone.

    I wouldn’t risk it.

    If you have larger fish, it would make an awesome snack from them!

    How do I get rid of them other than adding larger fish which I have but in other tanks? Most fish nip the antennas of my snails and that is not acceptable :(

    Just catch it and move it to the tank with the larger fish.
