    Best tool to scrape algae from a bowl?

    I can get a good amount off with a tooth brush, but itís a bit challenging getting the lower parts near the substrate without disturbing it

    but then you'd have to deal with scraping the ugly white eggs that they leave everywhere. i hate nerites with a passion.

    Can’t tell with nerites. You’d have to separate them them long enough to see if they lay eggs then get rid of the females. It’s a bit more than, “Make sure to get males”

    You’re better off using this snail

    I put on some Barry White, turn down the lights, and then look for the flap over the eye of the males. Never have i seen it. So i just listen to alot of Barry White.
