My shrimp don't need a taxi or Uber. They've got snail transportation. Sorry for the water spots.

And I thought mine were the only ones that did that! Sometimes my shrimp will cling to algae on the filter output as it gets flung out into the tank XD

Thanks. They are Blue Dreams. They look like little sapphires swimming around.

Snails are good for shrimp tanks. Their waste helps keep the cycle going since shrimp have such low bioloads and shrimp can feed on the slime they sometimes leave behind. I have 3 in my 20 gallon shrimp tank.

On many occasions, I've saw my shrimp break down the snails poop even more.

My cherry shrimp do this too! I figure they’re cleaning their shells or just avoiding being run over (my magentas are VERY active!).
