Two of my nassarius snails are picking on two smaller ones...

These two are using it's mouths to like eat(?) the smaller ones, and the smaller ones wrestle to get free

Could they be copulating? The snail's reproductive openings are located near the side of the "head", and as I believe Nassarius are NOT hermaphrodites, the size difference between the "aggressors" and those receiving may be a simple case of sexual dimorphism.


What is the current condition of those observed to have been receiving the abuse?

They're fine. But like I have TONS of nassarius eggs on the glasses...

Maybe they WERE copulating.
