To many snails?
I have a ton of pond snails and MTS snails in my tank. Like, a TON. I really don't mind them, I find them interesting to watch and the MTS do a great job of aerating the sand substrate. So while I know many consider them pests and esthetically don't like them, I have no problem with them in that sense.
In those high numbers, can they do damage to the tank? Can they upset the balance of water quality or anything? Is there any reason to try to cull them a bit? My tank seems very happy, no unexplained deaths, no algae, plants growing. I appreciate the saying "if its not broken don't fix it", but I also want to be proactive in avoiding any issues.
I will throw an assassin or two in there if there's reason for it, otherwise I'm happy to just let them be. Thanks!
