Snails eat algae. if you have a algae problem, you can just buy some algae remover

I was going to write something really fun and exiting and creative here but then my baby betta Eli distracted me.

Got a lizard that lived under the bed when I wasn't in the room- definitely not allowed. Few more months. Guinea pig- so totally ridiculously not allowed. Lived with all of them for the remainder of my time at that school- never had an inspection, and I had a furry friend! (as well as a few scaly ones!)

Moral of the story- a snail should be fine.
Oh my god that is amazing XD

I stated earlier that I do not want to pour algae killing chemicals into my tank, I do not trust them.

I just introduced a tiger nerite to the tank, the betta is NOT happy but he can get over it lol the snail is already hard at work cleaning up the tank! Pretty excited.

I don't get why they don't allow snails. But you should be fine as long as there is cover =)
