I have a 105l tank with ember tetras, corydoras and a betta (who will be moving into his own tank soon) and lots of shrimp. Id like to get some snails, ideally ones that help the tank a bit with algae etc. What types are peoples favourites? And how many would I need for a 105l tank?

Just so you know, make sure you don't have soft water because acidity will eventually destroy snail shells. What is you GH, KH and pH?
