I have a tank with L134. They even spawned for the first time (now 2 young visible and free swimming). I have some snails and spotted a kind of worm yesterday evening. Thinking of putting some Helena snails in, but afraid of those eating eggs. Anybody experience with Helenas and plecos?

All hypostomine plecos I've bred had these snails in the tanks - I've not seen them eat eggs, I've never seen a picture of them eating eggs. Maybe they will eat eggs if the male is not guarding them, I don't know.TwoTankAmin wrote: ↑Sat Nov 30, 2019 6:20 pmI lean towards the better safe than sorry school of thought here. I have been told by invert folks assassins will eat eggs. I used to keep them in pleco tanks. In tanks with fry I seemed to have losses when there were assassins in the tank. So I have since removed these snails from pleco breeder tanks. I still keep the snails in growout tanks.
