Is this normal?

I just witnessed my amano shrimp eating algae off my mystery snail. The snail was ok and still crawling around. Should I be worried?

+1 no need to worry I think they just do it to get a free ride, and to eat some algae

I saw an adult Ramshorn with three baby Ramshorns hitchhiking yesterday. Kinda cute seeing 4 different sized snails in one huddle. Almost time to see what the LFS will give me for some adult snails.
