So I've seen a lot of hate for these little guys but I've set up this thread to pay homage to the great MTS of my tank. They clean surfaces all in my tank, they eat decaying plant matter, and they turnover the substrate so you don't get anaerobic bacteria growth and hydrogen sulfide gas. They eat fish waste too and for the most part if you don't overfeed in your tank, your mts will reach equilibrium and monitor their reproducing. They also get in all of those tiny places to clean. They're great. And most of them come out of the substrate during the night so they do all of the dirty work while you're fast asleep, a bunch of tiny workers covering every inch of your tank for you.
So now I ask if anyone else has some MTS that you like?
