My Hillstreams seemed to have stopped breeding for several months. I've had no new babies and was wondering if the explosion of snails in the tank (there's 3 species) might be consuming any eggs that were laid.

The other day I saw a small baby P. cheni and today whilst doing a water-change I've seen several more. I guess the snails aren't a problem with the eggs because there are SO many Malaysian Trumpets going through the substrate they would just HAVE to find any eggs and eat them if they so desired.

Martin.
