Snails - At it like rabbits ?
I've only had my tank for 6 weeks and I've got enough snails to feed a couple of skips. I was watching the fish the other day and it looked like the substrate was alive.... loads of snails ! They must have come in on a plant. Thing is, if there were this many on the plants I would have seen them, they must be reproducing at a rate of knots !
Are they a good or bad thing?
Do they eat algae?
It's not a good thing if they begin to infest your tank to the point where it endangers the other inhabitants.
If they get too out of hand, a couple of Khuli Loaches will remedy the problem quickly. Or Dwarf Puffers :D
I just got a yoyo loach to eat snails, and It's a really cool looking/fun fish to watch! We'll see how good of a fish it is when he gets bigger though...
