So I have two tiger nerites in my 5 gallon with my betta and I'm not even sure how they poop as much as they do I don't even feed them that much I give them like a piece of zucchini once a week. I like to do a 25% water change every week but lately since getting these snails they poop so much that I've been cleaning up all the poop and it drains almost 50% of the water every time I do a water change and it's always before my scheduled water change days because I don't want to look at all the poop off the bottom of my tank and I'm scared the ammonia will Spike plus watching my betta kick around all the poop is pretty gross. So my question here is should I be doing as frequent water changes as I am? is it really detrimental to my my small 5 gallon? I'll soon have a 10-gallon that I can put the snails in to or at least one of them. Also I have natural sand so it's real easy to see.
