Does anyone know if slime trails/residue from snails (in my case an Apple snail) actually invite algae to grow on plants? It just seems to be like this snail leaves a heavy slime trail wherever he goes. Yes, I can see it underwater :help:. It must sound like a silly question but I just had to ask. :smile:

From my knowledge it does not. I've had slime webs establish in my 10 gallon and its strange to see to say the least.

If anything I've heard apple snails promote infusoria.

Yay, at least I've got infusoria for any future fish spawns that succeed in this tank. :hihi: Sad to say, but I think my damn Bloodfins would get to the fry first if anything.
