Cleaning Crew of Two

Weekly cleanings and water changes were not keeping the algae at bay so I hired a cleaning crew.

Meet Zig and Zag, the two new Zebra Nerite Snails

They were chosen for their ability to clean efficiently while NOT reproducing. 

The fuzzy green sphere in the background of both pictures is a Marimo ball, named "Moe" by my granddaughter. She felt that the Panda Tetras, Eenie, Meanie, and Miny really needed a Moe to make a complete quartet.

Looks like a 'win win' situation! Is two enough?

I don't expect it to be an overnight solution PJ, and they may have their work cut out for them. It is only a 5.6 gallon tank though, and 0.6 gallons of that is behind a wall they don't have access to since it's where the hidden heater, filter, and pump reside. I'd rather have not quite enough snails than too many since having too many would mean having to feed them supplements.
