i have kept many shrimp and snails an i have never heard of a shrimp eating ramshorns unless there dead already. If your worried about it though stick to shrimp that get no bigger than 3cm like crystal shrimp and cherry shrimp

I wish my red cherry shrimp would eat the snails in my aquariums, but they just eat around them. I've only seen them eat the dead snails.

P, you could just crush the problem snails shells, then the RCS will clean up the mess.

I do this sometimes and the shrimp seem to enjoy the treat Would be better if the shrimp could do it themselves so I wouldn't have to touch the creepy little snails, lol.
