They like to burrow, which is why if they take over its hard to get rid of.StarGirl said:I have 1 in my 5g right now. Must be a male because I have only seen 1 ever and that is rare I see him.
I have a herd of Ramshorn in there now. Its a 5g sand shrimp tank so there is very little food being fed and they are all over the place. As of right now I don't believe the don't overfeed and they won't breed as fast line! Anyways I checked the shells and they were empty anyway. I do have 1 MTS in the sand tank with the Ramshorn. I haven't dared putting any in my 55g watching how they are exploding in the little tank. If I do get some for the 55 I want blue leopard ramshorn. The only snails I DO NOT want are bladders. Don't like them much, had them before.TheDojoMojo said:Mannnn am I the only snail supporter here?? These little guys will do wonders for your tank by cleaning and aerating substrate. If you get a couple youll probably end up with as many as your tank can support unless you get yourself a good predator like a group of loaches or something. I get being against snails if they eat plants/look ugly but these guys don't eat plants and they look amazing with that cool shell. To the point though, if you put some in there, and don't see any for a month or two, or more in my case (unless they were dead from the get go), don't worry they are under the substrate building a detritus-munching, algae-eating, tank-cleaning army! If the numbers get insanely out of hand and thats not exactly your style, you probably need to do a little gravel vaccing or algae control. If they don't have excess food, they'll start to die off.
Yeah bladders are towards the bottom of my list for sure. Had them everywhere in a 125, but I added some MTS to that and the MTS kinda took over. I hardly see a bladder anymore for some reasonStarGirl said:The only snails I DO NOT want are bladders. Don't like them much, had them before.
