Does Anyone Have an Issue with Snails Destroying Plants?
First post here. Glad I found this forum as this is a very knowledgeable place.
I have a large 220 gallon tank with tons of plants in it. I don’t feed the tank much or at all since it’s stocked with only a few guppies. I also have tons of bladder snails and ramshorn snails. I don’t feed this tank very often, maybe once a month.
Recently, I’ve been noticing holes in my crypt wendtii, Ludwigia Mini Super Red, Ludwigia Ovalis, Pearlweed, Anacharis, and Hygrophila cordata Red, Brazilian pennywort, amazon swords, and cardamine lyrata. Originally, I thought there was a potassium deficiency but the holes weren’t tinged with brown or yellow. It was just a straight hole. The leaves of my Pearlweed and Ludwigia have been absolutely destroyed, especially the older ones. It looks like bite marks and the leaves look ragged around the edges.
Have any of you had issues with snails eating plants If they’re hungry?
