Be excited that you seem to have what is a breeding population of snails in your system - What do they look like?

Could you be mistaking them for pods? But yea, why would you worry about baby snails, I had a not, but they got eaten by my crabs, now I only have about 7 baby snails left.

I have a lot as well and they come and go.

I hate them when they went into my Hydor FLO and stuck in there. Other than that, i don't see any problem.

Guess there's not much cause for concern based on everyone's comments... I just was worried of this throwing off some kind of balance in the tank. They are definitely snails not pods (I have a lot of those too)....

look up colonista snails.

 

film algae grazers, like mini-turbos. They're probably what you have.

probably, I do have 2 turbo grazers that I've had for a couple months now... Check my sig for the types I have... def. not the bumble bees, not the margaritas either... As I mentioned, I added the turbo grazers about 3 months ago, and a trochus about 4 weeks ago...

consider yourself lucky...most people have to buy snails! lol. seriously, don't sweat it. They'll either regulate them selves, or if you have any crabs, they'll get regulated.
