I stripped down my tank a couple of months ago and completely re-furnised it. I added a bunch of new live plants and added back in some of my malaysian trumpet snails i have (as i have sand substrate).
I've however noticed this snail moving rapidly across my glass - he must have come in on the plants even though i did soak and wash them thoroughly. Can anyone identify it and advise whether i should remove it or it's ok to leave in the tank
Personal preference. I don't see snails anymore in the fancy tank but assume that's due to no left over food remnants given the two 'piggies' I have
When I was running the two trop tanks I did get these despite having to add new live plants far less frequently than I have to now. I tended to squish any tiny ones on the glass, trops would hoover up the bodies but put any larger ones that sometimes appeared, out on the garden wall for the blackbirds () Just too big to squish without me feeling weird and at least something benefitted.
