    How well do the trapdoor snails do with african and convict cichlids?

    We have 1-60 gal tank, 2-55 gal and 2-20 tanks approx how many of the trapdoor snails if they will work would we need?

    African and convict cichlids would most likely harass the trapdoor snails, so not likely a good match.  A few snails per 10 gallons of water should manage a tank for algae, but it would be better not to overfeed the tank in the first place.

    no snail is safe from cichlids ... even the calmer ones
