I was running tank without filter socks for about 2 months. So maybe the larvae were able to survive?Suddenly I have dozens of these tiny snails. They are about the size of a pencil head. Are the friendly?
Yes ! They are all over the place . Gets hard to clean the glass cause they are in the way and won’t move they’re in the power heads, plumbing , just everywhere A good problem to have in reefing.Sometimes i catch my snails spawning. My water gets cloudy. Than I watch the males release sperm and female release eggs. I have grown them to adult size in my tank. At first I liked it knowing I never have to buy snails again. They became a problem they were all over the place.I found tiny snail in pvc which eventually can become a problem if they grow.
Looks like Colonista snails, usually come in as hitchhikers. I have them, bought Bumblebee snails to help keep them in check.Suddenly I have dozens of these tiny snails. They are about the size of a pencil head. Are the friendly?
