    Default Assassin snails

    Will assassin snails and cherry shrimp survive together. I am worried about the snails eating the shrimp.
    Thanks!

    Yes they will devour any shrimp whther that be healthy or unhealthy shrimp.
    One may ask how a healthy shrimp eaten by AS ? Your shrimp is grazing in a moss ball happen to have AS in that same moss ball ( happened to me).
    Shrimp is grazing an unsuspecting motionless AS and grabs that shrimp by its legs via AS mouth / sticky tentacles ( happened to me as well).
    Even a baby AS about 3mm in size capable to kill an adult CRS about 2.2mm in size. I moved my 3 AS before I put CRS in the tank. But never knew that I still have 2 baby AS (3mm) and just found out it's grabbingmy adult CRS by its legs. I am pretty sure my CRS was healthy. And now it's dead.
