I love "pest" snails..I've never had any snails kill and eat my plants nor take over unless I wanted trillions of MTS. =D
I don't understand the hatred...

Hm..

+1 I love snails.

But if they do bother you, it is best to rid yourself of them early.

I'd say the like/dislike is split 50-50. I used to breed ramshorns (and may again at some point) because people liked them to clean their tank thereby minimizing work on the owner's end. I don't like them in my shrimp tanks because I like algae on my glass. I have no probs with them in substrate.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

i dislike having tons of pest snails on my glass. even in a non-show tank it makes the tank look lame. I do love snails though. especially my sulawesi snails. i dont mind having those all over my glass haha. the less pest snails the less competition for my tylos and the more breeding i get. which is why i pick out pests from time to time to lower the competition for the good snails. otherwise the baby tylos dont get enough food to make it into adulthood.
