As I do regret the day they introduced themselves to my tank. Apparently
they came in as eggs on a plant. Same way the Malaysian trumpets came in to
my tank. Since it has been a running battle trying to rid myself of them
without breaking the tank down. I hate the little round holes they leave In
my Anubias Barteri leaves in some cases I've removed half leaves that they
have chewed upon. Because I keep mainly Apistogramma rasboras and Pencilfish
in this tank I have not added any of the more robust snail eaters such as
loaches. Recently I did add a young black ghost to the tank. Its great I no
longer have to pick snails out of my tank they are gone. Love it the dratted
shelled crawlers are gone and hopefully they wont return ever. Just my two
