30 Gallon Tank Dwarf Chain Loaches. Should I remove the empty snail shells?


I have six of these fun little loaches in my tank. They munch through the baby snails and quite a few of the adult snails too, leaving a fair quantity of empty shells. Do you think I should be removing these like I would dead plant matter? Can they cause nitrates or silicates to rise?


I personally wouldn't worry about it but would remove some of them just by default as you clean the tank. Eventually they will leave the tank one way or the other.
