Snail help! Which snails are good?
Apple snails, mystery snails, ramshorn snails, assassin snails, trumpet snails, pond snails, and nerite snails... OH MY!
I've never had snails. I want to have them. They're cute and make good company for small betta habitats. Smaller plecos still need more room, corys need groups, and loaches need both.
So here's what I've got and what I'm looking for:
~10G divided in half with a glass cover, so a snail or two that would be good for each 5G space with a small amount of detritus to eat in addition to sinking foods or veggies but would leave my java ferns and anubias alone
~5.5G with a standard hood (I could get a glass lid to go under if necessary) looking for a larger snail who will again leave my java fern be and be happy with detritus, sinking foods, & veggies
I've done a bunch of research but I'm getting all kinds of mixed opinions and "facts" on who eats plants, who's a pest and who isn't, etc. I know there are some really knowledgeable people here and I'd like you guys' advice on which snails are better in general and also what's better for what I want so I get the right kind.
