    I have a new 5.5 planted tank. Snail hitchhiked in on one of the plants. Now there are ten. Not too worried about them, they don't bother me.

    It did get me thinking though...can they produce enough ammonia to help start my cycle?

    If they die they might be able to, it might depend on what type they are too.

    Pretty sure they're just bladder snails

    I don't know, they prob aren't enough to get a cycle really going.

    Thanks. Just got curious once I saw how rapidly they multiply.
