I was cleaning my canister filter tonight, and I noticed that there are several very small snails inhabiting the sponge filter media. They weren't there the last time I cleaned it (about a month ago) and I have no idea how they got there. I havent' put any new plants or animals in the tank in months.

Anyone got any ideas how they might have come from? I did notice a few snails in the tank when I bought my plants, but that was almost 6 months ago.

Probably came from the plants. I've had those little snails in my power filters before. I had probably 300 in a 125g when there were only Tetras in it. After the introduction of some cichlids the snails have all but disapeared.

Looks like I've got about 30-40 in my canister, but none in the actual tank. I guess they're taking refuge from my Jack Dempsey.
