I think there is enough to suffer a little thinning of their numbers to be honest.

I see the same thing with loaches. In my tank without loaches I have lots of MTS. I have 4, 3-4 inch loaches in my other tank, and never see the MTS, unfortunately, because I have a sand bottom and do want them.

Absolutely not, they are like a godsend for all things...

Do not be confused if you see them [edit] on a plant [edit], they genuinely clean the plants of any particles.

I have seen them chewing on decaying plant matter. I'm wondering if they like stemmed plants.

Nope, they eat anything in decomposition. Truly a gift.

Silly me, earlier I thought someone was from ipswich in England, seems it is a big place in Aus too.

I only asked about the stem plants since I have seen them at the stems from time to time, however the last one I Saw them at, well it had turned black and had to prune it from the bottom down.

Will never have been the snails that did it, they flourish the quagmire of left over foot and sediments that lay in particles
