Nerite snails of any kind, mystery snails love a snack, ramhorn snails... list goes on
Thank you so much fr your reply, Does all of them eat brown algae? Which one would you prefer ?Nerite snails of any kind, mystery snails love a snack, ramhorn snails... list goes on
Those seem like assumptions based on the original post. Brown diatoms are very common in new tanks.Did you cycle the Tank ? No ? Did you use the ADA Instructions ? No . Well that's why You have an Algae bloom . Go back to step 1.
Nerites.Please suggest me snails that are good at eating brown algae.
Yes, nerites will lay eggs in freshwater, but they cannot hatch there. They need to be moved to at least brackish water (though full salt seems to be better) within a week or so of being laid.Nerites.
I've read that Nerites have difficulty successfully breeding in our freshwater systems.
Can we get a few head nods on a yes for that comment?
They or someone else seem to leave dotty white spots on the driftwood at times if this is the "nerite-way"
I see the spots show up every so often.
Other smaller snail species are pretty out of control in some of our tanks and we have to put cucumber in to catch them at the same time we feed the Farlowella stickfish cats who also eat algae.
If you have driftwood that is soft enough for them to bite into a bit, they'll pretty much just camp there. In my home tank, they are all over the glass - crazy poop machines... In my work tank, one of them roams great while the other rarely leaves the driftwood.My nerites are lazy, I don't ever see them doing much. My mystery snails are always out and on the glass or plants eating algae.
