Their great to a point,
They can really ugly up a tank real quick with their numbers and they produce alot of waste,
I just barely got thru stripping a HUGH bunch of my tanks of the Pond and Ramshorn.
They were fine in small numbers but as they multiplied My plant life became devastated even annihilated in many tanks,
I had just had enough,
I was to a young guys house a few weeks back, He kept saying how great they were and how he had hundreds of them, Well he didn't, Not yet anyways, wait till he does.....and all he had in the tank was java moss and java plant which is two of the few plants they don't care for.
I was back to a friends house a month or so ago,
She had wanted These snails, Now she's literally over run with them and her tanks look awful, He plant life is nearly all dead, The few remaining tanks that have some plants are coated in black dots, Looks awful!
She's cursing the day she ever brought them back in.
She doesn't feed them either, But it doesn't matter, they'll eat anything available, In small numbers you don't notice the damage, But let those numbers grow,
I have my applesnails, Mayalsian trumpets and assassins which I have to feed and in the process you feed every other creepy snail there, So my curse snails multiple faster, But faster or slower they will reach the same level sooner or later if you don't use a means of control..
