Has anyone experienced a green water bloom after
introducing 50 malaysian trumpet snails into a tank ?
I have had a 55 gal planted tank for 1 year, which I
suspect has fair amount of detritus in the gravel. To
make my life simpler during water changes (no gravel
vacuum), I decided to add MTS. But after I added
MTS, green water occurred.
floramax substrate, 150 W 10 hr/day, pressurized CO2.
Anyone with similar experience ? Is this just the tank
rebalancing due to the extra bioload ? or is it MTS going
wild processing the detritus ?

Sounds to me like the little guys kicked up some nutrients. I think that they are 'innocent' of the bioload accusation .
