my girls, though, would NOT do well with shrimp. they absolutely DESTROY snails. there are so many big ramshorn shells laying empty around that tank, i know they'd destroy shrimp. However i have a very chill male who has five ghost shrimp buddies in his tank that he ignores.

I have a divider in right now and Speckles looks less stressed, she was never very good in the sorority. Ruby is a complete bully and could easily kill the teeny little females they had at the LFS. They weren't even half her size. Maybe I could get a bigger snail like an apple snail?? I really want to try with some kind of invert so my tank has a bit more diversity. I really dont like the look of Ramshorns or Malaysian Trumpet snails.
If I have one apple snail on each side of the divider would that work?? And can they reproduce with themselves like some snails?? Or something like that.
