Do you know of and understand the Aquarium Nitrogen Cycle?
Yes
I have always called them pond snails but I don’t REALLY know what they are. What are they? They are all super small and there are 2 out right now but I have seen three in total

They can overpopulate fast, so make sure you're not overfeeding the fish. They're great algae eaters, though.

Great I have seen them eat biofilm and algae. And They haven’t got the chance to get food on the bottom
