    How much should I clean my nerite snail poo?

    Hello! I just bought a nerite snail about a week ago for my 10 gallon betta tank. This snail is pooping non- stop! How often should I clean it? I usually do 2 1/4 water changes a week but I feel like that’s not enough for how much poop he’s producing. What do you think?
