Oh, and do any of you with plants in your tanks have Apple Snails? My snail was bought as an "Algae Eating Snail" but after some research I'm pretty sure he's an Apple Snail. According to a website I was reading some species of Apple Snails are voracious eaters who can destroy your tank in a matter of days.
To my inexperienced eye, I believe based on his shell, my Apple Snail is a type who will only eat live plants if there's nothing else to eat and prefers artificial food.
I'm just curious if anyone has had issues with Apple Snails? I woke up to my snail on my Java Fern, but he doesn't seem to be eating so hopefully he wont be the reason my plant doesn't make it!
