Sure, loaches, puffers, whatever...  I find all this talk about MTS snails
eating fish eggs very interesting. I had never known that before or seen it,
but it seems to be common knowledge here.  I would venture though that it
may depend on the type of fish and where they lay their eggs. I have raised
Kribensis fish quite successfully in a tank crammed full of MTS snails, as
well as Angels. Perhaps these fish defend their eggs better? I have also
seen Kribensis eat small pond snails, I am not sure if they go after MTSs
since my MTS snail population in my Kribensis tank was unaffected.  In my
shrimp tank, when I feed my shrimp algae wafers, all the MTS snails surface
from  under the gravel to feed on the wafers. It is kinda erie to see the
gravel start to move and churn as they appear, but it makes it real easy to
remove them.
