A combination of MTS and assassins. The MTS because they're pretty much unavoidable, it seems, they keep the substrate clean & aerated, and the babies are very efficient algae eaters. The assassins because they keep the MTS under control--eating the big ones but leaving the babies, multiply slowly to match their food source, will eat uneaten food, and devour any fish that might die while I'm out of town so they don't foul the tank. And because they're pretty in their own right with their brown & yellow striped shells.
I'm fascinated by the giant Sulawesi rabbit snails, and the Sulawesi chopstick snails. The chopstick snails will aerate the substrate, and the rabbit snails are large and impressive, but there are some reports they may eat some plants. Both are supposed to breed slowly, and prefer warm & hard water.. Does anyone have experience with these snails, and will they eat plants?
