    Hi all,

    I have recently noticed white spots on my bogwood, initially I thought they were small bubbles but they have started moving! They seemed to appear around the same time as ramshorn snails appeared in the tank.
    Some have grown to around 3mm max length (before I skwish em).
    I do not have a picture but to describe them;

    They are translucent white in colour, look like one half of a very small mussel shell, seem to be more active at night when they appear to head for the surface (I say this because a lot of them are near the top of the tank when the lights come on).

    Anyone have any ideas?

    If I can get one in a suitable position I will add a photo later.

    Thank you

    Mark

    Could be either pond snails or mts (Mylasian trumpet snails) Both are considered pests by many.Some like how clean they keep a tank.
    I find them disgusting and squish every one I see.lol
    You can also wiegh down a leaf of lettuce and leave it overnight.Gently remove it in the morning being careful not to wash the snails off as you lift it.

    almost sounds like freshwater limpets. There was a better article somewhere, but for now this might help:

    To be honest I am pretty sure they are not snails, they look a lot more like a miniature limpet.

    It is a freshwater tank so I presume that is unlikely?

    I really need to get a photo taken.
