both MTS (Melanoides tuberculata) and Ramshorns (Planorbis corneus)will breed, but they will not eat healthy plants

Pomacea bridgesii will not breed without 2 snails and will not eat healthy plants. Thats about all there is that are readily available. Nerites are nice if you can get em.

I have a low light planted tank. I am not an expert, but I swear I did a lot more tank maintenance before I ended up with my Ramshorns snails. They seem to keep it clean and they have not overpopulated the tank by any means.
