Snails in the aquarium can be both a blessing and a curse, depending on what species you have. They are excellent algae eaters but they're also quite slow and an algae problem can get away from them. When choosing a snail, to avoid a problem with over population, choose a snail that either does not breed in freshwater such as the Zebra Nerite Snail or that has separate sexes and is not hermaphroditic such as the Golden Apple Snail.
