So what quantity is just right?
Mostly don't want them to eat the plants, they they clean up dead plants I'm fine with them. It seems you are right in that this is twice now that I've seen the "snail eggs" on the glass in the last few weeks and only twice I've seen snails. I'm thinking of baiting the tank to see If they will come out.
I just learned how to feed my little piggies. Just keep adding little portions until they begin to calm down. If you see that one of your little buddies didnt eat dont worry, he'll prabably eat later. If you dont see him eat at all for a week do begin to worry though.
If you have the snail that I posted above they will not munch on your plants so no worries:) I was told by many experienced people that these snails are good to keep but if you want them out ASAP just get a little leduce leaf and weight it down on the bottom with something and put some flakes on top of it. Wait until the next day and most will be on top of that leaf waiting for you to take them out.
