My mystery snail (aka apple snail) has been in tanks with anubias, swords, crypts, moss, riccia, wisteria and rotala. No problem at all. I have watched him wind his way around newly planted stems...of course, they are fairly newly planted and not dense yet. I do wonder if he might now bowl some of them over once they are thicker. He certainly does not eat them though.i have a 15g heavily planted tank and was considering an apple snail to make it a little more interesting.
im curious to wether or not it'll devour my plants or not.
And this is a good thing, as most of the other species will readily eat any plants available, pomacea paludosa especially, those things wolf down anything green.the only species available readily in the hobby is pomacea diffusa. The others are banned fro interstate transport so are not commonly available.
So apple snail = ok??
