Will a Mystery snail eat my Hornwort?

Hello, I'm interested in getting a mystery snail, but, I don't want to put it in my tank that is FULL of hornwort, if it's going to eat it all.

Thanks!

Mystery snails will not eat healthy plant. I have lots of plant eating fish, they will not even eat hornwort. Must be, some kind of nasty tasting plant!

Just make sure what you get is Pomacea diffusa. Pomacea canaliculata has often been confused with diffusas and canas are voracious plant eaters. Canas are illegal to ship across other states due to their potential to destroy local flora. Diffusas come in different colors so I do not think it would be difficult to distinguish them from there. Canas have sunken spires compared to the diffusa1 but unless you know what you are looking for, this may be a bit tricky to differentiate.

Looking at Lupins post, i think i may have a canas. It ate my hornwort actually as well as all of my micro swords. The only plant it hasnt touched is the javamoss. What do you mean by sunken spire?
