Re: NANFA-- Snails.

Yes, I have Malaysian trumpet snails. I actually keep snails for enjoyment,
not their cleaning capabilities. I like snails better than fish. I even have
my own tank set up for them, heater, filter and all. Pond snails (Physa
acuta) are very good tank cleaners. The only problem with them is that they
reduce it to mush which sinks into the gravel. But this is fine if you have a
undergravel filter.
