After awhile they become a pain. I prefer shrimp to help out with algae. Snails don't seem to help much. MTS help with gravel, but they also help too much. All my glosso gets ripped up. With gravels like eco-complete, I don't think you have to worry about impaction. And I hate that they just sit on the glass and block my view. They are like Rat's, I get rid of them.
