Snails do far more good in an aquarium than people think.
As well as getting rid of excess food and rotting plants (also clearing up any lost dead bodies), they can be the first indication of something being wrong (or right) with the tank.
I think as long as you keep on top of the population by not overfeeding they are seen in totally the wrong light by a majority of fish-keepers.
I was really upset when I lost my stock of bladders and ramshorns in The Great Curtain Rail Crash of 2010.
The Great Curtain Rail Crash? Sounds traumatic, I wasn’t around here in 2010.

I like keeping my population of bladder snails in a healthy balance. They keep on top of things, help to keep things clean...I don’t mind them. Much like the hair algae it’s natural I just with it wouldn’t multiply so damm fast!
