yep assassin snails will also work to get rid of other snails...I forgot about them lol.Oliver T. said:I'm thinking of buying a chinese algae eater, also I picked up these silverdollars for free, which have terrible fin rot and got ich (which thankfully I cured) but they are so shy and won't dare to come out from the back of the tank (I have 3 of them) Also, the snails look ugly and are over running my tank, ive heard of something called an assassin snail which eats other snails, is there such a thing?
can I buy them young? is there no other way to get rid of bba?JamieXPXP said:yep assassin snails will also work to get rid of other snails...I forgot about them lol.
I wouldnt get a chinese algae eater as they won't eat algae when they get older and will eat the slime coat off of other fish
ive had them for 4 monthsIverg1 said:For silver dollars give them time sounds like you just got them their probably scared from a whole new place with other fish and weird algae two-4 weeks might be good for them
you can buy them young but then will have to get rid of them once they get older and keep an eye on them. you can spot treat the bba with excelOliver T. said:can I buy them young? is there no other way to get rid of bba?

Snails can help to remove some of the algae.
What is the tank size?
If you don't have a Co2 system, make sure the plant you like doesn't require it.Oliver T. said:40 gal
btw, do any of you know a plant that acts like a carpet and spreads across the sand?
