Snails & DG

    Hi all, random question do Dwarf Gourami eat snails? I didnt think so, but since i added my new pair on Thursday I havn't seen any snails, i didnt have a huge infestation, i maybe saw 4/5 at a time but they seem to have completely disappeared! What do you think coincidence or secret assassin gourami? :p

    As far as I'm aware DG's don't eat snails though if you crush the snails I'm sure they'd enjoy them as a snack.

    I am having the same problem! Horrible disgusting infestation of snails. They lay so many egg sacks that the substrate in my tank is covered with them, every plant every piece of driftwood every inch of the glass. I also did a lot of research about what would eat them. Sounds like loaches were the best option. But they don't recommend getting loaches unless you're going to get 4 to 6 of them, and I'm just not sure if I want 4 to 6 4+inch long scavengers hunting around the bottom of my tank! I wish the gourami would eat them!
