For anyone who has purchased aquatic plants for their fish tank, most know that the plants will more than likely come with snails- even if the package claims, “Snail free”. Snails tend to have a bad reputation for multiplying exponentially and for being a nuisance. While most rid of snails immediately, we wondered about their potential within an aquatic ecosystem. What if there was a way to utilize the power of snails in a positive, productive and ecologically friendly way and save water too?
