My 29 has pond snails.......I use to see tons of them and I would squish them, but for some reason ever since I bought my Neon Tetras I haven't seen any, and they're too small to eat the snails. Hrmmm.......

They're probably building a bunker Sakura ;]

I saw some ramshorns yesterday at my lfs that were about as big as half of a US dollar bill. There were eggs all over the tank, huge sacks of them! There were also giant female bettas in the tank - for $3! Got a giant cellophane girl. Those snails were crazy though!

I got some pond snails, having mistaken them for nerites. Thankfully I left them in a QT container, they got tossed on the lawn and the container went in the trash (20+ egg sacks just ew).
Now if only I could find some MTS. I have sand, and that would cut any stirring.

Those egg sacs are disgusting to look at. The first time I got one I had no idea what it was.

I Might Be In Trouble

So after all this talk about MTS taking over the world, I decided to take a good look at my tank. I have reddish Fluorite topped with pale play sand so I though maybe I just wasn't seeing them. I looked and looked. Surprise! I found one! I looked some more and as I kept looking, a grim realization hit me: what I used to think were Fluorite rocks were SNAILS.

These were just the ones I saw at the front of the tank. I shudder, literally shudder to think of how the back of the tank looks. Everywhere I looked, now that I knew what to look for, I saw little spiral shells.

Sooo, uhm. Do you think my koi can eat these?

uh, off topic from the OP, but do mystery snails dig into the sand for any reason? This is at least the second time my black mystery snail has dug himself a nest or something.
