Tell me everything about snails.
So I am still cycling my tank, waiting for nitrites to go down. Today I found a tiny snail crawling on one of my plants. Smaller than a grain of rice, totally black.
Part of me was a little excited simply because this is the first time I've had a living thing in a tank other than plants and it was cool to look into my tank and see some life... but I killed it anyway since I have heard that their populations easily get out of control. RIP in peace Larry the Snail, 2014-2014. For some reason I feel bad for killing it haha. I almost left it but it will be easier to buy snails in the future than get rid of an infestation if I don't want them.
I guess I will just be on the lookout for the next few days. Interesting that it is living in a tank with nitrites off the chart.
