I have Malaysian Trumpet Snails (MTS). They live in the substrate and oxygenate it so more oxygen gets to the roots. They do reproduce according to availability of food.

I'm ready to start a rant about over and understocking, fitting one more fish to the max. Somewhere along the line I read that understocking is better than stocking to the max. Now I like the idea of understocking and I'm used to having just a few fish. And they get more resources per fish.

Agreed with the above two posts.

You could bump up your school of neons and maybe even increase your colony of ghost shrimp (however I'd just keep neocardinia if your betta doesn't eat shrimp).

But why not keep it to a minimum?

Also snails aren't really a utility item. They are pets too. They don't exactly keep things cleaner, as they poop a Sh**-ton. (hahah get it?) They don't eat poop and what algae they do eat, gets turned into poop again.

I easily would recommend Ramshorns or MTS for their attractiveness.
