Hello Fishlore,

My mystery snails have been a bit annoying by uprooting my plants. I don't want to get rid of them and I've tried to think of many ways to stop this. How do I stop this?

You could try putting some small rocks around the plant to keep them from getting at the roots.

I did think about this, but there are so many vals that it would look weird. Also I don't have access to a pet store rn

lead weights around the base of the plants
OK, so I can put lead in the tank? I assumed that you couldn't just because it's lead...

You can get packs of lead plant weights for fairly cheap. Lead shouldn't be toxic for the tank.
