Do they make the glass on your tank slimy/dirty? A few people said yes but the majority says not really noticable.
Been reading about snails breeding all day. :)
I accidentally killed them when I took them out of my 33 and didn't acclimate them to my 10 gallon where the pH is much lower....yeah newb move on my part, but I had them for about 6 months, no problems!
My largest one was just under an inch, they grow fairly slowly and no I never saw any residue on my glass whatsoever. They did stay on my driftwood for the most part though, but it's understandable since I had all sorts of stuff growing on it because it was new to the tank.
And yes, you are correct, Mini's generally only get to an inch, I've never seen them much bigger but I'm sure they can get to 1.5 inches whereas the regulars get to around 2-2.5.
I really wanted the orange rabbits when I first saw them and then I found out about the minis and thought they were so much cuter! lol, I still want an orange one though, when I get more money
