Pet Snail: Algae on Shell
Hello. I have a 6 gallon Marineland Aquarium with 3 Zebra Danio fish.
Last month I bought a black snail for the aquarium. He seems to be doing well except now I notice his shell is getting green. I think it's algae..
I have to keep wiping algae off the aquarium glass when I clean it.
Should I try to clean his shell off with a damp cloth when I clean the aquarium? Maybe I should get some treatment to try to kill off the algae in the aquarium.
Also does he need any special food? I try to put in extra fishfood so he can eat that off the bottom of the tank.
