Mystery snails devouring duck weed
 
Hi all!
I put a bunch of duck weed in my 20g as a quick fix shade and something for my gourami to stare at... I also have 2 golden mystery snails in it. Today when I came home, I noticed that the duckweed cover was significantly reduced! Both of the snails are foraging on the duckweed! The other 10g that I had, and put very little duckweed in.... now seems to have more duckweed....
Hail mystery snails! (?) ;-)

Update! How long has it been since the last post?
While I was updating, 1/3rd of the water surface was covered with duck weed. And now.... there are hardly a few ones around...... It is not going in the filter! The filter is clear of any duckweed!!!!!
Guess how the snail is eating it!!! It is floating upside down in the middle of the tank and feasting on the duckweed !!!
