I would think IAL would have the same effect and yet I just read from a snail breeder that they love to eat hardwood leaves like IAL.
maybe its something that is in the wood itself?

If you want some adult trapdoors, I can get some from the lake but you might want to quarentine them for a bit as I heard they can carry parasites. I actually used jungle's fizzies on the adults when I was treating someone for ich. I missed the part about being harmful to mollusks. or was it malachite green? I used something in the tank I wasnt supposed to

I'd put some in my 20gal but now that I have the loaches, I can't. I already put my nerite in there on the hopes that he's too big for the loaches to bug. If not, I'll yank him out.

EDIT: I wonder how long before my baby trapdoors grow up . . .

Mine are dwarf loaches that get maybe 3 inches long. But they are also crazy expensive, averaging $9.99 per fish.

Pink! The ones I'm getting are pale pink ramshorns, really pale pink.

Distribution

Though native to East Asia from the tropics of Indochina to northern China, this species has established itself in North America.

Shell of Bellamya chinensis


Nonindigenous distribution

Its popularity as an aquarium animal has led to the accidental introduction (via aquarium dumping) of this snail in many areas where it has become a problematic invasive species.
Bellamya chinensis is an introduced species in the United States. It is found in "any or all of the tributaries on Grand Island and on both sides of the Niagara River in the United States and Canada."[3]
It is regulated in Minnesota where it is illegal to release it into the wild.[4]
Ecology

Feeding habits

This species is primarily an algae eater. These snails are popular in aquariums because they do not eat fish eggs or plants, they do not overpopulate aquariums, and they close up if there is a water problem, giving people an indication that something is wrong a few weeks before the fish die.[5]
Life cycle

Reproduction is initiated sexually. Bellamya chinensis, in common with several other related species of snails, gives birth to live young
I live on the other side of the state from the niagra river - near vermont...
