Algae eaters to replace nerites


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!  
I currently have 3 nerites in my 5-gallon betta tank. I love them. They do a good job of eating algae; however, the mess they make from eggs on my driftwood is really annoying me.  I replaced my driftwood recently for that reason. Im thinking of taking my snails back and getting a different type of algae eater or starting over with one nerite at a time trying to get males only.   I've also found some hitchhiker snails in my tank and they are multiplying. If I go the route of an assassin snail, I will need a different algae eater.  I'm looking for suggestions on what I can put in my 5-gallon with my betta.
