Nerite Snails with Hillstream Loaches


Recommended Posts

It was suggested to me to get a nerite snail or two for clean up crew. I know nothing about snails. My question is, if I'm planning to add hillstream Loaches in the near future, are they going to compete for food? I know that the Loaches will eat the bio film on the surfaces of the tank, not so much the algae, but if the snails are eating the algae, will they also be eating up the bio film? I plan on feeding them other food, too, of course, but just curious. I want everybody to be happy and foraging to their little hearts content.
