Ah, so THAT is what happened to my duckweed! =o I was told they left all plants alone unless they were dead! T_T
I'm also having issues with mine getting damaged shells, so thanks for that info as well, Silverfang! Seems you guys helped more than one person out. xD Will it heal up? I thought something else was going on with mine. x.x
Anywho, I have a snail that is identical to that one, it was labeled as a mystery snail, smaller version of the apple snails. They love all kinds of foods, not just algae. They wont be as healthy with just algae. You could get some algae wafers, they'll flock to it if they're good and hungry, but they still need more than that, Plecos and cories do as well, common misconception that they only eat algae, they can actually get stunted and get digestive problems if only feed that. Mine like to snack on brine shrimp when I put it in for my fish, and plant-matter. I feed my fish the Emerald Entree quite often, it's got proteins and veggies, and my snails usually flock to it as well.
