I've decided to ask this because I've been seeing a snail on my java moss, but I don't know if it's grazing or eating the moss. It's a very tiny snail with spots on the back. It's a golden, though more brown color. Of any of you guys know what type of snail this is, or what snails eat java moss, I'd be happy to know! Thanks!
I would say he's grazing or eating dead/dying bits
I would hope so... I think he's eating the pieces of dead java moss that's mixed in with the live moss.
Lets put the questions this way: would the common hitchhiker snail or the common pet/wanted/kept snail eat live plants? If so, what types? Right now they're grazing on diatoms and GSA on the glass, so I've decided to keep them and let them clean the algae, but I still need to know what type they are so that I don't risk any moss beng eaten.
