Alright. Just looking for cheap options that maintain their population without getting too out of handMrBryan723 said:Mts are probably a better option as a deep cleaner, both can get out of hand pretty easily. Assassin snails will do the job as well without getting out of hand.
Is there a reason that I couldn't get a ramshorn or mts or two and then if they get out of control then get an assassin if I need itMrBryan723 said:Well, assassins aren't really "cheap" but i know a few mwmbers here might be willing to donate a couple for shipping costs.
Pfs? So MTS AND ramshorns?aquachris said:Probably the two most likely to do the job. I got to get my hands on some mts yet. I have some pfs in some tanks and they would be great to stir it up.
I have pond and ramshorn snails in my 130L and 87L who've all snuck in on plants (I didn't have the heart to wash them down the drain).. the pond snail population definitely exploded, the ramshorns so far haven't seemed to much at all. They are very pretty and interesting to watch though! There is never any algae in the tank and I love them my mum has several ponds on her property she is letting me release the pond snails into thankfully and they are native so using that as a strategy, as well as removing the eggs when I see them, to keep them under control.FishGirl115 said:Should I get a ramshorn snail or two for my 29 gallon aquarium? Would it get out of control? I want a cheap snail/deep cleaner.
Got it. thanks for clarifying. I will do some more research on each and decide. Thanks for the help guys!aquachris said:Pool filter sand. Not sure for you on both or one over the other. I think both are def more interesting than bladder or pond snails. Like someone else said though I have no algae in tanks with them.
