[APD] RE: Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 9, Issue 1

Although many people seem to like them, I hate them with a passion. Actually, I hate all snails, I dont' think they are neccesary. They populate too fast, sometimes eat plants and generally are just a pest. Also, they are unsightly IMO.

But about the MTS, they are the most difficult snail to eradicate (if not impossible). Although loaches and puffers will eat them, they are notoriously difficult to completely eradicate since they burrow during the day and only come out during the night. Also, since they are hermaphroditic, you can start an entire population with just one snail. Also, becuase of their burrowing ability, they can burrow deep enough to avoid chemical and bleach eradication, as well as drying out the gravel.

What is your opinions on Malaysian trumpeter snails? Do you like them in your planted tanks? I would like to know before I add them in to my tank. Any considerations?
