Mystery snail and Swordtail
Hello, I have a tank of 74 liters with 3 swordtail fish and some plants but it's being filled with algae. I used to have a Chinese Algae Eater but it began to annoy my swords so I put it in another tank.
Then I read that mystery snails are good cleaners but I was wondering if they are compatible or not with my swords.

a mystery snail should be fine with your swordtails. my swordtails never bug the snails.

Good companios for my swordtails?
Ten I'll get one as soon as I can! Thanks.
By the way does anyone knows about any good companions for my swords? I especially like big tetras like lemon tetras and others. Can they live together?

74 liters is about 19 gallons. Swordtails and snails might be all you've got room for, especially if you want to keep fry alive! your best options might be bottom feeders.

I would go with a nerite snail instead of a mystery, especially if you want it to eat algae.

^very true. my nerite snails are all magical beings who absolutely chomp through algae.
