Now these guys are ultra cute and pretty. I love them! BUT I might as well not have them. Since I got these guys (unfortunately 1 DOA and 1 went to snail heaven a few days after arrival), I have moved three of the four into the 5g betta tank, where they do a so-so job at trying to get the spot algae cleaned off. I think they eat some of it but the acrylic is far from being clear - and that is three snails working on it. I still got the fourth snail in the Banana tank in hope the snail will clean the algae off of the anubias in there, but NO. Even though I manually clean pretty much all the diatoms off of the glass and filter intake and bubble wand, this little guy keeps his distance to the plants. Instead he searches for "hidden" diatoms that are along the inner silicone seal of the bottom seams You know, the ones that you can't clean off that easily. And yes, I tried moving him on top of one of the plants, and he ate a bit, but a few hours later he was on his favorite spot on the back wall silicone seam again I AM DISAPPOINT
