Confetto Posted December 12, 2022 Share Posted December 12, 2022 I have been running a 3 gallon Aqueon tank since July. Miso - a tangerine koi betta - lives well in a planted tank with frogbit, two types of anubias, a bucephalandra and what I believe is a hornwort plant. I use a small sponge filter and generally my tank is quite clean. That said, I've noticed my anubias nana has some dark patches of what I believe is some sort of algae. I have tried to rub it off with a soft toothbrush and nothing happens. So I was thinking of getting a snail. I must say I'm not a fan of snails... It's an unfounded fear of my tank being overrun with them &/or they escaping. However, I need some sort of 'zamboni' to assist cleaning the plants & decor that I can't clean when using an algae scraper. Due to the size of my tank I can really only house one snail. And that is if my betta will accept a new roommate. I'm leaning towards a nerite snail as I have read that their eggs don't hatch in freshwater tanks (and if I get a male, this will not be a problem) Other than needing to add nano calcium tabs for shell health, what do I need to know about 1. What snail to get 2. Caring for a gastropod 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
