I like them in my guppy fry tanks for that reason- survival of the fittest. I bet they'd eat fish eggs if something spawned...
I'd also get 5-6 Nerite snails of whatever kind you like. They don't breed in freshwater and are very attractive- perhaps the zebra or corona nerites....
Okay...cool! I Googled them and it said you can put one for every gallon of water. So...I can put 125 of them? LoL! I read that and read that ~ did I read it wrong?
They are great in garlic butter at a french eatery but...I had a snail outbreak once in my Discus tank ~ Ka..........zillions of them!!
But you say these don't breed? I know where to find you if they do.
I am going to google the three you mentioned. Aren't they sensitive to meds, though?
