A hob filter is a Hang on Back filter. Do a quick google image search if you don't know what that is

Ok yeh. Didn't realize it was referred to as a hob filter, like I said just getting started.

Ok
Malaysians trumpet snails or mystery snails. There r others but I'm not gonna mention those cuz those r usually not sold in pet stores or r harder to take care of.

The difference between them is that mystery snails grow a lot bigger ( max is golf ball size ) and r more active in the day.
Malaysian trumpets r a lot smaller ( max length around 3/4-1 inch long ) they also help with waste/leftover food in the substrate becuz they r burrowers and will dig through the gravel. They won't dig up the plants though. however, they r more active at night and some will only come out at night.

That's great info! I was worried that they would eat plants.

Nope. They don't eat plants.
Some other snails do ( like mine ) will eat plants but my snails r SUPER RARE and very hard to find. Not to mention they r expensive.
Malaysian trumpets and mysterys eat algae and waste material, etc
