I searched before deciding to post, and the common answer I found was always, "What kind of snail, and what kind of cichlid?"
Unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me remember the species of my two small cichlids.
The employee at the fish store said there wasn't a common name for these fish, and when I got home and started Google'ing, I came to the same conclusion. (I suppose I could always be wrong though.)
They're about 2 inches long, and according to the same employee, won't grow very large.
When I went to visit my brother I was amazed at the size of his black mystery snail. The shell was as big as a ping pong ball and it's antenna must have been close to two inches.
So, my question...
Would a black mystery snail and my "mystery" cichilds get along?
I know cichilds like to nip. Antennas might look tastey.
