    Default malaysian trumpet snails

    Ok with plants? I'd like some in my little 8g, the plan is for plants and shrimp in there, and if I get a lot of the MTS can I throw the extras in my big tank for the clown loaches?

    they leave plants alone, overall they are quite handy to a planted tank. They aerate the substrate, eat algae and dead plant matter. Once you have them though, you've got them for good because they breed easily.

    If not careful they will take over. When they breed, they really breed.

    Yeah, the clown loaches will eat them though right? I will put the extras in with them.

    yeah, just a warning.. once they are in your tank they are there for good...

    a loach or two will keep them under control (kinda) but will never get rid of them all.

    I have them in one of my tanks and honstly don't like them that much. They look ugly on the glass.

    Even a loach or 2 wont keep them down.. But they are handy for a planted tank.. But i have tonnes they get out of control fast and you can never get rid of them once you have them
