IMO, they are great for your aquarium. Most of the day, they will spend their time hidden under the substrate. They will come out at night and act as cleaners, removing any uneaten food that the fish may have missed.

Agreed. They keep your substrate from compacting, won't harm plants, don't really show up above the substrate often and look pretty cool anyway so it's not a big deal when they do. One of the best snails around, if you ask me.

If you look in my topic "What eats algae but not plants" it turned into a topic about MTS... So far, it seems that if you know what you're doing and don't overfeed (and dont have way too much algae) then they're great. If you overfeed or they have too much food, then three could turn into three hundred in a few months. Even that might not be horrible, just kind of unsettling.
