I've never had any issues with my MTS altering the water significantly. They eat a lot of detritus in the substrate that would be decomposing and altering the water chemistry anyways.

My MTS don't reproduce nearly as much as my ramshorns. I think most of us that keep snails exercise some level of active population control. I toss in some boiled spinach once a week or so, wait for it to be covered in snails, and then pull the larger onces out and toss them in with my Oscar and Convict who dispose of them quite quickly.

It's not hard to keep their populations in check if you see them getting out of hand.

Come on Frozenbarb. Try to spell words correctly, use some punctuation and capitalize words that need it; if nothing else, do it out of respect for the other members on the board.

will parrot fishes anf flowenhorns and arrowanan eat them?
Not the aros. Their mouths do not appear to be design for managing to eat snails unless they swallow the snails with shells included like bottomless pits do.:icon_wink
