Are my snails making LOVE or WAR? LoL
 
I have an almost 1/2 inch I believe ramhorn snail ... sometimes I see the smaller ramshorn snails climbing on him, or under him, and they stay like that for like 30 minutes...Are they mating or fighting or what? lol
The pond snails don't mess with him though.

My guess, mating. My Mystery snail have been at it too. I have 3 separate sets of eggs on my aquarium. I think my Gourami is patiently waiting for his snack as he hangs out right below the egg sacks, staring at them.

My ramshorns and ponds do that, to me it seems the big one just grabs food and others try to get it... Not fighting, as much as tug-o-war
