I've wondered about that myself.  What are they trying to get to by climbing
the glass at night?

What are Venezualan ramshorns?  I've got a golden colored ramshorn, about 2"
in diameter, and I could actually see him taking bites out of an anubias leaf.
He has since been banished to the 29g tank.   I have a red ramshorn in the 
main tank for a while now (6 months or so), and he's still small (under 1").
I just got a bunch more red ramshorns that were attached to some plants I
got in a trade.
