I have heard that clown loaches are great for keeping snails and snail eggs at bay

yeah so are dojo loaches apparently. i havent seen any new ones in my tank with the loaches in it so i guess they're doing their job. the tank with my fry, however, have like 15 egg clusters. non have hatched yet though.

i think a snail from my first batch of snails survived
my other snails dont seem to be growing fast and i found a new small snail in my tank
its smaller than a dime
its shell is like greenush brown and a little seethrough and i think because its young the snail is sorta pale but my others are dark

not technically true, hermaphrodites have the ability to wield both reproductive organs.

2 are still needed for fill fertilization to take place.

there will have been another snail in the tank for it to happen or it will have had pre fertilised eggs.
