I have pest snails (bladder, I think) that came free with my fish, I have been pulling them out with each water change to control the population. Recently, I decided to try a planted tank and put drift wood with 3 small tissue culture Anubais in the tank. The plants were doing well for a few days, even getting new leaves, then I noticed the snails climbing on the plants and wood. The next morning all the leaves were eaten away, down to just stems. There is also small, tissue culture Cardinal plant in the tank, which haven't touched. My question is do snails eat Anubias? I have a lovely, larger Anubias that is currently in QT along with an Amazon Sword, Java Ferns and moss balls. I'm now questioning whether I should add them to the tank or not. I don't just want them to become snail food. I have 2 Nerites that haven't touched the new plants, it's just the little guys earning their "pest" title.
