I'd like your input and experience with these lovely cleaners.
I am currently on the debate. Priority number 1: Get rid of that algae in my tank(brown algae i believe). Priority number 2(isn't something that needs to be done just yet) get that 75 gallon cycled.
Now i'm not sure if the snails will be able to successfully help the 75 gallon cycle. but incase they take over Spike's tank, I've got that one set up and ready to run.
Now my debate is:
Mystery or Malaysian Trumpet?
I've heard Malaysian will reproduce like rabbits and you'll be over run with them. Now my 75 gallon does not yet have a light source. It sits inside the apart and away from all windows. No light can reach it. The dining room light can but i don't think that will be enough light.
It also does not have a full hood so my next worry is brave snails climbing out.
So right now, I just want this algae taken care of. what is your personal experience with either or both snails?
Spike's tank is 5.5 gallons
fluorescent lighting and sunlight access.
no live plants right now(still considering getting one along with the snail this weekend)
Water changes are as follows:
50% with vacuum once a month
will anything have to change with this new pooper?
