    What do you guys think about keeping a local South African Plough snail in your aquarium? Yes, the ones on the beach...

    I have thought about it, but they seem to scavenge on stuff that wash up on the beach - never really see them in deeper water.
    Maybe you can do a test run with one and see how it goes?

    nope
    they feed on the good stuff you want in your tank

    And anyway your tank is too small for them.

    Pick one up, show it to your girlfriend, squeeze it a little and see it squirt water in her eye…
