Yoyo Loaches

I have a pond snail problem so I was thinking about getting three of these. I have three mystery snails and I was wondering if a yoyo would go after them too?

perhaps a mod can move this to the correct section, but to answer your question yes they will eat any snail they find, regardless of size.

Ditto with Wolfy. Loaches will eat any invertebrates you place in their tank.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

If you have regular pond snails they will eat them happily. Mine won't eat the little flat ones. I think they are just harder to eat since they are so tiny.

My yoyos won't touch my snails. Now i have a an extreme over population of snails in my tank. I am going to be forced to set snail traps to get rid of as many as I can. There has to be thousands of them

my 3 yoyos will eat any and all pond snails they find, but they rarely eat any of my malaysian trumpet snails. if you are concerned about losing your mysteries, you might re-home them to another tank.
