Will the Shellie’s eat the baby endlers? Or will I have to worry about the endler eating all of her babies? What do I do with the pregnant endler?
You could just leave them be and let nature take it's course. If you really want to raise the baby endlers there are "guppy breeder traps you could place the mom in. Do you have an extra tank to raise the endlers?

One of my siblings said they are willing to take care of the endler babies in her tank so I feel better knowing that they won’t get eaten
With the cichlids I can let nature take its course because they protect their babies unlike endlers which eat them, sometimes even right after birth

The cichlids really hate all the snails. Some snails came with the jungle val(live plants which are very hardy and look pretty in the thirty gallon) and they bred pretty fast but they clean the tank. I always see them take snails in their mouth and just drop them on the other side of the tank or throw them from their mouth.

We have around 10 baby endlers that haven’t gotten eaten and are living very well in a baby box! One of the endlers is in my five gallon planted tank and the others are in a 20 gallon tank exactly like the one with the cichlids. Sorry I haven’t been active in the forum lately I’ve been busy
