    Default free snails

    these are not pond snails. they are the biggest pointed snails I have ever seen grow in my tanks and I don't know if they are useful to anyone. Except as loach foodWP_20170422_19_33_53_Pro.jpg

    Those are malaysian trumpet snails and are great in planted tanks. They don't eat live plants, only dying or dead plants that are decaying. They also dig through the substrate and keep it loose for plant roots.

    well those are not regular trumpet snails then. the kind that multiply 80 times a month and tear up pumps? I guess I won't put loaches in the tank I got them from. In truth, the plants are thriving. These are still available, I am sure there are more.
