    Default What kind of snail is this

    I got one snail on some moss about a year ago. It died but left a blue iridescent egg sack on the glass under the water.

    Now I have lots of snails. They don't harm shrimp or plants. They are pretty bad at cleaning algae. They are all brownish-black.

    This is one of the biggest. The white thing is an API test tube stopper.

    Thanks for the help

    Looks like your average pond snail

    Looks like a rams horn to me, they can take over your tank and are a PITA, I would just keep taking them out or get yourself a few clownloaches, they eat them.
    Back in the hobby, 1- 20 gallon shrimp tank and a 42 gallon community corner tank

    Looks like a pond snail to me. If you want to be rid of them I'd go for assassin snails - they eat other snails and don't breed rapidly at all. Our you can go with the clown loaches if your tank is big enough to handle a school of them (they get big and need to be in a school to be happy).
