So ive read a lot about them. apparently many species of loaches love to eat snails. Dojo/weather loaches in particular. however, what im curious is: how quickly will this work? i mean would i have to not feed my loaches for a while to make them want to actually use the snails as a food source or will they just simply say "oh im hungry. oh look a snack om nom nom munch sucky lump slirp yum!"
also i have a little five gallon tank with 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 snails
yep one sextillion snails [yes thats a real number]
not really that many but yeah a lot of snails
i was curious if i put one loach in their just temporarily to get rid of some of the snails would he/she go right into it within the next 24 hours and start eating them or should i just use the lettuce method of reducing the snail pop?
any comments would be appreciated :)
