Re: snails - friend or foe of planted aquarium?
I like my bee nerite snails. Like Cathie said, not too big, dont eat the plants and with the bee nerites (well mine anyway) they dont leave eggs all over the place and dont breed in the aqurium. Hardy little critters too. When I moved house in November(!) I removed some of the bogwood out of my tank and accidently took out a nerite snail aswell. It survived 4 days in a tub in the back garden with just a little rain water as moisture. It's still going strong
