Title: Red Ramshorn Snails
Post by: Netti on September 27, 2013, 04:49:13 PM
I've found 3 red ramshorn snails in my 40 gallon. They may have been on the water lettuce I've added about 4-6 weeks ago. They're kind of cute, but I'm wondering if they will become a nuisance (reproduction) if I leave them in there.   :question:

they will reproduce .. If you spotted two there will be more.... ;) Some snails are really pretty in their own way ..
 Do you have a friend who has large loaches or puffers? .. They would appreciate a few live snails from time to time. :lick:

The assassin snails will take care of that problem really quickly.  If you haven't seen one go to town then I suggest you check out a video of it.  Really cool stuff

Those ramshorn snails I've taken out of the tanks back then, found just one other the other day, but I don't think they are a problem anymore!  :)
