I like this post! Originally I freaked out about having bladder/pond snails (they have black shells with gold specks), and some actually died randomly, but now I'm starting to love them. They cleaned ALL of the green algae on the glass, I have a ton of little babies and egg sacs on the tank, but I've just stopped feeding in the tank (letting the neon eat the copepods), and hoping the levels go down. But in general, I can't believe how spotless they keep the glass! On top of it they ate my small hydra population. I just threw in a handful in my 40 to take care of the algae on the glass. Their eggs are unsightly, but they are workhorses!!
