I found Malaysian Trumpet snail in my tank

I found one snail shell about half an inch long laying on top of my gravel. I then notice it was moving and today it is gone out of sight, I have no idea where it came from but I was told it is a good thing to have for planted aquarium etc riight.

I have two in my tank that have grown quite large. I was told I would have lots more soon, but I haven't seen any more. I've seen these two grow though. They cause no problems to live plants. They will clean up after dead plant material and algae.

They are very good for planted tanks and especially so for tanks with a sand substrate. More than likely it hitchhiked on some plants.

*Moving thread to Planted tank forum.

Personally, they creep me out, but are said to be good to have. My only complaint is that if you try to mound your substrate up in one spot, they will see to it that it gets level again. They tunnel through the substrate and the result is the same as putting your finger in there and stirring it up.

I love how they level out my substrate. After a gravel vac, I don't have to level out the lumps of sand I leave.
