Snail Shells Are Corydoras Killers!
I thought I would post this up so others can learn from my mistake.
My mystery snail died (probably of old age) and I left his shell in the tank for decoration.
Several weeks later one of my corydoras went missing. There aren't nearly enough fish to consume him and I searched the tank up and down... It was a MYSTERY!
I went to buy more corydoras, and in the process bought another snail. They threw in a pretty big snail shell as well because what the heck...
A few days later, ANOTHER corydoras was missing... I was flabbergasted! I could not figure it out...
Finally, it dawned on me... And yep, there was a freshly dead Cory in one shell, and an old dead Cory in another... I now have NO snail shells in my tank...
So FYI... Cory's like to go in them and they will get stuck and die. =[
