zebra nerite snails
im considering to buy zebra nerite snails to control algea and diatoms on the right side of my 5g divided tank. the diatoms/algea only gather on the right side of the tank covering the walls, main divider and the fake plants. i heard they need a mate to reproduce in brackish water. im not really into snail population explosions. would it be safe if i purchased 1 zebra nerite that doesnt seem to have any egg sacs to put on 1 side of my tank? my vt is a bit agressive buthe calmed down regarding the other DT in the 5g. not sure if thats any indication he'll go for the snail antenna.
do zebra nerite go after deadplant matter also? my tank cover is 95% covered on the top. to escape they'll have to climb under the cover to the top and cut back agian toward the tank wall/filter.
