    Vermetid snails

    It appears that I may have several of these on the newest LR. Can they be detrimental to the system?

    Thanks in advance!

    They send out "webs" to catch their food. They are not at all detrimental to a tank, however some consider them to be unsightly due to the webs.

    Well that is good news and along with those people, I find their webs fairly unattractive myself! I am actually going to take that LR back and trade it for a new one! Thanks for such a quick reply!
