Shrimp and Snails in PT?

I was wondering what kind of snails and shrimp to put in my planted tank. I have a kind of soil substrate. MTS and RCS?


If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you've always got.

RCS are ok as long as you hve lots of densely packed hiding places.abd get the biggest ones you can find.... so it wont be eaten. no guarantees though.

both do great in planted tanks, snails to reproduce quickly, just make sure not to overfeed. MTS love tanks with dirt/sand substrates since they like to burrow. RCS do well, if you have other fish in the tank, some will eat them.
If I had a car I would bring you a ton of MTS lol
