    hello,

    i am thinking about getting some MTS for my 20 gallon tank, but i have kuhli loaches that do burrow into the top 1/2 inch of sand.

    Will the shells from the trumpet snails hurt my loaches when they burrow?

    I had originally wanted to get nerite snails but i can't find any local, and i don't want to deal with shipping, not till it warms up a bit more at least.

    any advise?

    thanks

    Nope, I have both in my 20 & they cohabitate just fine. :)

    Same, my 3 kuhlis have been cohabitating with my MTS in my planted 29g for a year and a half now without issue.
