Hi, I have 3 shrimp tanks that I've been wanting to add snails to help with the algae and I think they look pretty cool. Been doing some researches tonight but still cannot decide which one to go with and before buying anything I wanted to get some ideas. The Assassins Snails looks awesome but seems to eat shrimp sometimes. I do like the golden ram horns but I've read that they do fight for food a lot and do eat your plants sometimes.
I do like those Thorn Nerite but they do not breed in freshwater.
I want something that looks cool unlike those pest snails.
I want to order some by tomorrow if I do come up with a decision with some help from you guys so if you have any personal experience with any snails or any ideas just leave me a reply on here.
And forgive my English as french is my first language and thanks in advance for the help:)

In addition ramshorns can breed out of control if too much food.

And fem Nerites can lay eggs all over your tank and they won't hatch.

You already know pros and cons, so do what you like. :)
