    Hey Masa
    Something strange happened today.

    I fed my fish frozen food today -i feed my fish frozen food every 2 -3 days and pellets every other day .
    When i fed my fish all my fish and cleaner shrimp came out to eat .
    About lunch time i noticed that my snail had killed my shrimp .
    But since i have sorted my calcuim levels and lowered my nitrates i have noticed the snail been moving around the tank more often . Before the snail used to sit in one place for 3 days then decide to move to the next rock .

    I have sumped the snail uploadfromtaptalk1463865036693.jpg

    The snail did not kill the shrimp. A healthy shrimp is very fast and agile while a snail is not. The shrimp was either dead or dying.

    Is it a local snail? For me it looks like a Burnapena cincta
    Or Ridged Burnapena. They are scavengers on dead or injured animals. So technically part of your clean up crew although you most likely will have to feed it lance fish to be able to survive long term.

    A couple of better pictures will help. From above and below as in the picture (minus your fingers)
