LOL Seriously though this thread reminded me of a question I've been meaning to research up on, which is how to tell the "good" snails from the true pests. From what I've found the most common 'infestations' seem to come from pond snails, nerites, or ramshorns. The ones at TPA are so tiny but I figure that's because they're babies. I'm wishing I'd known more when I bought those plants so I could have gotten a close look at the shell shapes.

Really its Ramshorn and Pond snails, They both are hermaphordites and can breed asexually when necessary. So really if you get only one. You can have a tank full in no time with enough nutrients. Those two are not pests when you want an excellant cleaning crew of algae, dead plant matter and leftover fish food. Some people just don't like to have hundreds of them in their tank. They can be an eyesore in those kinds of numbers. Loaches, puffers and assasin snails eat them so they are nice to have in large amounts in those tanks but without any predators they get really out of hand fast. I've squished every one I've seen in my 29g and everyday there is a new one. I don't see any eggs but I know they are out there. I'll just get me some ninja snails to assassinate them. :)

Awww you changed your icon~ That old picture cracked me up.

But that's a pretty CT, and that's coming from someone who's not that big on CT. I presume that's Monster?

yes it is. I would love to keep my old avatar but I'm too happy for my petco rescue. It seems everyday his fins are getting thicker and longer. He is growing still so I wonder how big he will get.
