what kind of snails?

i got some plants and i guess it came from a snail tank...

it started with this guy now i have tons of lil babies everywhere...

this guy leaves slime trails and such on my glass. i have no clue what kind it is but it reproduces pretty rapidly. I dont even feed the tank theyare in really its my shrimp tank.

what is it ?

im considering throwing my dwarf puffers in there for a while to clean them up. Just afraid they ll harm my RCS...

why are they horrible? besides the fact that they reproduce like crazy leave slime trails and such?

ya...they are pissing me off for the sole fact they are leaving trails on my glass...

anyone have any ideas if dwarf puffers will harm my RCS? they should clean them up pretty good.

mine tend to come in on driftwood in huge egg sacs, not the plants. I had about... 40 of them one night....

until i dropped in my zebra loaches! holy moley they ate all but 2 who managed to escape to the top of the tank!

honestly though, i kinda like em. makes the tank look more natural imo.

Throw a piece of lettuce or spinach in the tank, they will eventually congregate on it and you can remove a lot more at once that way.
