Yeah, that was a poor choice of words on my end XDmattgirl said:My ramshorn and bladder snails breed just fine in a 2.5 gallon tank with nothing but an airstone for aeration and a pothos plant to help clean the water. I think your hitch hikers will be fine.
I did want to point out. You aren't cycling the water. You are cycling the tank. Bacteria doesn't live in the water but grows on all the surfaces in the tank.
XD glad to know. I need them for a puffer so this saves me some troubleGuanchy said:oh no, you will soon find out lol. They don't need much to breed. I started with like 2 and overran my 10 gallon in just a few months.
