They breed slowly and can't eat algae. I find that once you no longer have any 'extra' snails they prey on their own young and with giving them away/selling them to other aquarists they never get a very large population going. In any case they never bother any plants, lol. Terrific at stirring the substrate like MTS as well.

+1 they're much easier to get rid of. Also, they have cool bumblebee stripes going on. A tank with a bumblebee theme would be awesome.
