Shell dweller question

632 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  ahud

Would the lepido. lamp. shell dwellers be easier to mix with the neolamp shell dwellers? For instance I kept Lepido Hequi and multi's a few years back with no problems, but I wonder if I just got lucky.

Reason I'm asking is because I want to try it again.

I have never tried this as I prefer to keep one shelly to a tank... but my guess is that you just got lucky. Of course this depends on the size of the tank.
I tried to keep multies with meleagris once in a 180 thinking that the size of the tank should prevent hostilities. this however did not work the meleagris would just go and raid the multies shell cluster repeatedly until I took the multies out. So I agree that keeping mutliple shellies together is rather difficult.
I had them on opposite sides of a 5ft tank. I don't think they ever knew each other existed.

Well I will probably try brevis instead.
