I put MTS in all my tanks to clean up the uneaten food - I never remove uneaten food. However, I feed my fish often enough to know how much they need to be fed so there isn't much left over :)

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Yeah I have MTS and pond snails (and assasins to keep their population under control!) although the assasins seem to prefer the MTS so I might need to get some more of those and try to just have them in the tank as they like to burrow don't they.
