    Yeah…sorry. I realized and went off to resize it myself as well… Sorry about that :S

    Anyway, that is the only type of snail I have, yes.

    Becca yours are a different beast entirely…this is some species of Planorbis; usually referred to as Ramshorn snails. Personally I don’t mind having a small population of these in a tank; they will munch small particles of uneaten food and some kinds of algae. If the population is allowed to grow unchecked they can become a problem, though.

    Alright. Thanks. I try to not let their numbers get too big, but they annoy me to no end being in my tank. (Yeah, I probably sound like some crazy person, but it’s one of those things that just piss me off. /wink.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”;)” border=”0″ alt=”wink.gif” />

    Well at least you both have the less invasive species. It’s really up to you guys whether you want to maintain a small population of these or not. They certainly won’t do any harm provided you cull them regularly.

    I am keeping a small population, as they seem to keep the algae at bay, but anytime I see one close to the top I take it out and throw it into the garden.
