the results of my first try ended up with 3 ramshorns literally chomping my healthy plants down to nothing! lol now I'm down to one Ramshorn snail and he still chews on healthy plants, I guess I'm gonna have to get rid of him

as for my plants, you guys will have to excuse but I only know a couple of there names, I'm still learning...

hygro
crypot wendetti ( I thikn its wendetti )
green fox
rotola indaca
asian ambulia
water clovers
a ground cover that looks like wisteria
one thick stemmed green plant with a minty smell
and one I have yet to find out what it is, but its doing good!!

The correct spelling is Cryptocoryne Wendtii.

Is the Ramshorn cream colored with brown stripes? If so, it should be removed to the tank as it is a plant eater. The other smaller varieties of ramshorn should leave healthy plants alone and only eat unhealthy or dieing leaves.
