Re: [APD] snails and loaches

I had a 120 gallon tank with both clown loaches and Amano shrimp in it. As best I could tell, they were compatible, and all of the snails were gone in a few weeks. My experience was that putting plants in the tank just about guarantees putting snails there too. I suppose there are effective ways to kill the snail eggs before planting the plants, but I never tried any. I preferred to look at it as providing the loaches with a treat.

No question that the clown loaches will eliminate the snails.
