Snail id pond or ramshorn

Keep or smash?


I added hydrocoytle to my tank a few weeks ago and have now counted up to 5 baby snails. Not sure if I should keep them around or not. I have 3 plants in the tank.

Those are ramshorn. I really like ramshorns, so I vote don't smash. However they do breed a lot, but if you don't overfeed their population shouldn't overload your tank.

Definitely don't overfeed as they will turn into breeding machines.
