I've heard that they are ok. I also heard that they could do some bad things to your fish if they eat bird poo, and then your fish eats them. The guy in the pet store said that most of them come in the stomach of their plecos, and break out. I don't know if that is true. I have heard of plenty of people on here keeping them in their gf tank. You won't see them much though, they like to live in the gravel, and sometimes come out at night. I got mine for free at the pet store. I asked them if I could have a few when I was getting a fish, and they gave me as many as I wanted. I think they wanted to get rid of them. Well that is about all I know about them, so good luck. :D

I have them in my tropical tanks and shouldnt be put into cold water.They give birth to live young and will only take a few months to over populate your tank so you will have to thin them out after a while.

They hide in the gravel and move it around so stopping it from forming pockets of decay but they do better with sand where they stop it from compacting.

They dont eat healthy plants, only dead and dying ones so are ok that way.
