It depends on the size of your tank. How many Gallons is it?

If I might make a suggestion .. If you get a snail, zebra nerites make awesome algae eaters and they won't spawn like crazy (they have male and female)..

Careful of ramshorn snails or pond snails, they don't need a mate to spawn (like the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park) ..

any old nerite would work, there are tons of awesome patterns actually! and if two nerites get put together and eggs do pop up, they wont hatch as they need brackish/salt water to hatch.

and nerites are really cute!

Don't get mystery snails. One missed egg clutch and you'll have a population boom.
