My cory cats are cleaning the nerite snail eggs off the driftwood.

    One of my tanks is next to where I sit and It has a piece of driftwood that my female nerite snail deposits all her eggs. They have been there for a few months and I noticed that there aren't quite as many as before. I watched my cory cats removing and eating them from the driftwood. Bless their little hearts. I just had to share. Alison:;hi1

    They are still working the driftwood. The only thing I can think of is that the eggs are kid of shrinking due to the age and are coming off the driftwood making an easy snack. All three of the cories are grazing on them and you can see where they have cleaned off and eaten ares of eggs. Alison
