not entirely.. yes they are very similar ... but one spirals to the left and the other to the right. That is like saying Greeks and Italians are the same...

I remember you having this discussion in a thread regarding feeding dwarf puffers snails and you briefly covered the differences from scientific name aspect between a bladder snail and a pond snail... which got me to research a bit more.

From the what I can see at the moment, I think I am leading with the thought of a pouch snail.

Those snails won't overpopulate without enough food...

People blame the snails, "Oh, they're horrible! They're EVERYWHERE!" When it's the aquarist's fault for giving them too much food. No animal will reproduce if they're not getting enough food/borderline starvation.

Well, I havent seen that little snail in over a week now!!! I do have 10 kuhli loaches in the tank, and I know clown loaches will eat snails, so maybe kuhlis will too...considering how small the little snail was!!

Planning on adding like 5 MTS to my 15g and like 10 MTS to my 29g in the next couple of weeks. The kuhlis do a good job on moving the sand around in the 15g, but the cories in the 29g just sweep the sand around verses doing what I have the kuhlis for and want the MTS for.

Any one know if kuhli loaches will eat snails??? I want to make sure they wont before I add MTS to their tank.

LOL!! don't tell them that!

I haven't kept loaches and snails together. I know some will eat snails and some won't but can't say with certainty which will and which won't.

maybe someone in one of the other sub forums would know more about loach feeding habits.
