Garden snails


Are they safe to put into a tank I have a few plants like amazon swords etc. and have 10 neon tetras and gouramis but I want some snails due to some algae is this okay or not?

Garden snails won't survive submerged. I'm sure there are some folks in your area that would love to give you some of their aquatic snails.

Big chain pet stores sell snails or you could look in the for sale and trade section of this forum. Aquabid could be a source as well.

If shipping snails wasn't so taboo I'd send you a handful from my tank.
