I have a question about shrimp and snails...

. Is the parasite of most ghost shrimp fatal to their health?
. If a snail eats the parasite from the ghost shrimp, will the snail get sick?

I'm sorry if you actually posted this somewhere. ^^"

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I thought snails do, they eat stray food after-all. xD I'll google the worms, I'm sorry if those were stupid questions.

Aren't these infected shrimp? Link
Looks pretty obvious, how do you dispose of them if they get out? Disgusting! Dx
