GSA eating snails??


Is there any snail that will eat green spot algae? Yes I know it is a sign of low PO4 and that I can just scrape it off with a razor blade, but it is in one of my shrimp tanks and I will not dose ferts in that tank.

Nerite snails will eat GSA off of the glass as well as off of some slower growing plant leaves like anubias...well at least my nerites did.

I have olive and zebra and have seen them both working on the GSA I had on my Anubia.
