I know this isn't how it works with these guys, but they'd much rather ride each other all day than clean up any algae buildup on the glass. ;)

They used to do a great job. At first I suspected a calcium deficiency so I put a piece of cuddle bone in the aquarium. They never went near it. Then I thought, well maybe they're just cleaning buildup off of one another. I don't think so. It is almost constant at this point.

I guess that I just wanted to post about my Nerites. More algae scraping for me on water change day. :)

Next is 8000 white eggs everywhere :rolleyes:
Oh it's been that way for a while. Completely gave up on that. Water changes were like 3 hours long when I tried to clear everything of those eggs. So ugly, hit not worth the time!
