How do you keep a Ramshorn from floating to the top. My Angels like to pick at it then.

Went to feed fish last night and the Ramshorn was on the bottom doing his thing. Interesting to see how far they come out of their shell while scavenging. My Nerite hardly moves at all. I have a big blue shelled MS and he enjoys being half in the water and half out. You think my water conditions are not right for him?

Yeah, snails "walk" on the surface of the water as if it were another bottom to the tank. They consume bacteria and proteins in the biofilm that collects in still waters in their natural environment.

You'll never be able to stop it from floating, but as stated before you can provide floaters to keep it hidden.
