He dominates the algae wafers I put in for my Corydoras, and hoovers the zucchini I put in for my Otos. He's obliterating my live plants, ripping entire multi-leaf sections of Hygro Kompact from the stem, and sucking holes through the dwarf sword leaves. And the amount of poop he produces! Aye carumba!
Ok, so there's no actual question being posed here. I really just wanted to vent about this pig of an Apple Snail.
Aw man! I just bought an apple snail to help with my water. He's gold also, a perfect match for my gold twinbar platys. Maybe mine will have better manners.(yeah right). Oh well, I cant keep my plants alive anyway, at least someone will benefit.
