Just a community tank. Some neon Tetras and other tetras of the same side, Cory catfish, the biggest fish is probably a rainbow fish.What other livestock is in the tank?
75 gallon community planed tank.Yeah, we would also need to know the tank size and the type of snails you’ve got. it’s usually not a great idea to introduce a fish to solve a temporary problem. So you should think about how the animal would fit in with your plans for the tank.
If you buy a snail eating fish keep in mind that you have to feed it after your snai
This seems to be the type of fish I am looking for.YO-YO LOACH..they will take care of them in no time
This looks like a great selection also! I am somewhat limited to what I can get at the local Petco and pet supermarket.I added a dozen Botia sidthimunki to my 75 a year or two ago to eliminate snails and would do it again in a heartbeat. Lovely fish, and they eliminated all snails quickly (week or two).
I would not recommend assassin snails, as they are an invasive risk in many areas, and would do irreparable and catastrophic harm to aquatic ecosystems if they were to establish.
I've had good luck with Dwarf Chain Loaches I purchased over the internet.This looks like a great selection also! I am somewhat limited to what I can get at the local Petco and pet supermarket.
My local petco has downsized its aquarium fish selection to like 1/3 the size it use to be.
They won't eat snails. If they're healthy it sounds like you're doing things right. How much to feed them has a lot of variables like how many there are, how big the tank is and what the rest of the fauna is.I have pygmy corydoras, and do you guys think they eat snail eggs? I have snails too, and was wondering if technically they could get enough to eat and live healthily off of the biofilm, algae, infusoria, and snail eggs that naturally occur in a heavily planted tank. I do feed them occasionally just to make sure they are still getting a bit of protein, but they seem incredibly healthy in that tank. I have a bunch more that will come out of quarantine soon that are not looking nearly so good as those guys, and yes I feed them too, it's just not as established of a tank, and has some tannins in it, which seem to inhibit the algae/biofilm.
