Haha sure will! So do you think the nerite and Amani's will clear most of the forming algae in the tank, like the spotted algae found in the glass? I discovered that any glass cleaner won't work on the glass algae, so what will have the strength to pick and eat t it? Also, I have heard that nerites, or snails in particular, have a big bio load (poo?), so is that much maintenance. Required to care for them?
