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
awh how cute! i love how blue your shrimp is - is it a dream blue velvet shrimp?
Thanks. They are Blue Dreams. They look like little sapphires swimming around.
seeing shrimp do this with mysteries makes me /really/ want a mystery snail. . . why do they have to be so messy
? My mystery snails aren't messy at all
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 20g shrimp tank.
On many occasions, I've saw my shrimp break down the snails poop even more.
thats good to know! once i finally have a chance ot make a shrimp tank i'll definitely stock some of the wonderful "water dog" mysteries in there
My cherry shrimp do this too! I figure they’re cleaning their shells or just avoiding being run over (my magentas are VERY active!).
