About 2 months ago, I started a 10 gal with the Eco-complete. I added unknown plants that I
had had for at least 6 months and a Betta that I have had about as long. After about 6 weeks
I find dozens of small flat snails clinging to the back of the tank with some on the plants.
Eco-Complete claims their product is snail free as the substrate itself comes from a dessert. Where
did the snails come from. There had been none present when the plants were in a different tank as well as known living with the betta. Anyone else have snail appear from the thin air?

No, these are not planaria. These are light reddish color, and have the typical snail shell crunch when I smush them against the glass. By flat I meant as opposed to cone shape, or round like mystery snails. Their shape is flat curving against the surface of the glass rather than standing up away from the glass. Does that make sense? They are not the deep redish brown of typical snails I have seen. So far they are staying quite minute and I have to scrunch my nose up to see the snail shape. :) Perhaps if they grow bigger they will look like snails I have seen before. As you can tell I never did get interested in snails. Karen
