I have a guppie in my snail breeder tank and I was worried about that too but I haven't seen him even try. And there's tons of snails in with him. Ranging all sizes

Yeah, I've got lots of guppies in a wheelbarrow, and there are lot of snails there. The snails lay eggs and have young, and my guppies don't even try to eat them
Hopefully the helps! :D freshpuffer1
