I bought a bunch of gold mystery snails after reading on the Internet how they did not damage plants. They must have been talking about plastic plants. This is a picture of an Echinodorus berteroi after I removed a snail from the last half eaten stem. Note the white spot at the base where all the other stems had been eaten away. I also received considerable damage to Hygrophila, Ludwigia and my Crypts. In the morning my tanks contained a bunch of chopped up plant debris floating at the surface.
Is there a type of snail that is truly plant friendly?
