    Just got home from vacation and found a lot of the snails floating at the top of my shrimp tank. Shrimp are all fine. I had cut down their feeding to once a day while I was gone. Could they be floating to skim food off the water?They’re just pond snails but looks crazy. Just got home so haven’t checked parameters yet but did big water change Sunday morning before leaving.

    I kept about 5 pond snails in a 0.5 gallon tank, and they ate biofilm on the surface all the time. :)
