    Our Stomatella lost its tail. Our Skunk Cleaner Shrimp went mental for it, nibbling away. Question is, if Shrimp loves Stomatella tail so much, why did Shrimp ignore it when it was still attached to Stomatella? Hope you can help :)

    Okay here's my theory: A large enough population of various Stomatella spp. can do the job of a combination of Turbo & Astrea Snails in a CUC. Is this an accurate theory? What are some of the pitfalls of attempting this species swap? I have stomatellas breeding like crazy in my tank now...

    I'm pretty sure that is what this is but i'm making sure cause i don't think i have ever seen one this color before. I have seen the velvety black cowries before, but unless someone has better eyes and memory than i do, i think this is a stomatella....
