I wonder why P's won't eat snails. My Oscar will eat them shell and all but my rbp's won't even look at them. But then again my O will eat just about anything.

I also recommend loaches for snail extermination they seem to love them.

P's seem to live with snails no problem. I think if you asked every member, they would say the same thing.

I asked why once, but no one asnswered. It must be a big secret.

Will P's live with snails or will they just eat them?
I've never had snails before, so don't know, but Kory mentioned above your post they don't.

Not sure if that means all of them don't or not, or just his.

as far as I know a piranha may look at a snail and decide it is a rubbish meal as it tastes bad and it is small and not worth eating, especially due to the horrible shell.

also I dont have snails - I don't know why, perhaps my piranhas do eat them, and I'm sure my other fish in my other tanks do also

My red bellies will NOT eat Ramshorn snails, which is cool because I breed them in the Red Belly tank and then throw them into my frontosa tank for them to eat! Free food!
