Ramplo Posted August 2, 2022 Share Posted August 2, 2022 Hey everyone, looking for some advice! I’m finding mixed info online so I’m hoping someone here has some experience to help. (TL;DR at bottom) Back story: I was given a 2.5 gallon established tank a bit over a year ago. It had one endler and two tetras. One tetra died recently,I’m assuming partially from stress because it couldn’t school. I’m very interested in plants/aquascaping. My plan is to have a tank for my plants and the fish are just an added bonus. The largest tank I can comfortably fit in my tiny rental house is a 20 long and I have already purchased and set up the tank and I’m trying to cycle it (“trying” being key, story for another day) In with all the lovely plants I got, I seem to have gotten a snail. And it/they have had many babies. I’d like them taken care of before they get out of control. I have been trying to collect and remove them, but I checked everything I bought before it went in the tank so I think this is a losing battle. I’ve read betta fish will eat snails, I’ve also read they’ll only reliably eat them if you squish them 🤢 I read Cory catfish will eat them, then I read they’ll mostly just eat their eggs. I hate snails so I am hoping I won’t need an assassin snail… Also don’t know how well it will live once all the snails are eaten. Suggestions? TLDR: 20g long planted with neon tetras and at least one endler. What can I get that will get along with these fish and eat snails? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
