that's extremely odd... i have had both pond and trumpet trumpet snails 
in with apistos and kribs. never noticed any "carnage". spawns have 
always been of normally reported size. i even keep a few large "mystery"
in my larger tanks. i've seen the fry pick at the snail's shell when it
cruises through the swarm.

where did you read this?
