I think I may have seen a bladder snail in my 29g... are those bad or good? :]

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

the ones with round shells are probably ramshorns..

Some people say they bother plants, but I have about 15 largish ramshorns and 5-10 largish pond snails and I might lose 1 leaf from my rotala every few months.

I think benefits cover any drawbacks...
(heavily planted tank, some guppy fry might die, they'll eat the corpse so it doesn't pollute too bad.. also eat algae, etc.)

Also, something that small, unless you have several hundred probably couldn't do that much damage anyway.
