Gravel cleaning with snails

Post by Sandman1969 on Sun Apr 19, 2015 4:00 pm

I just added 2 assassin snails yesterday and I also have a few trumpet snails. One seems to have recently given "birth" as there's a small one now. But I am curious how to go about doing gravel cleans. Would they be too heavy to get sucked up?
They're around the size of a dime, just a bit smaller.

Sometimes i see baby trumpet snails floating on the surface of my tank, im not really sure how, but they do occasionally float so im guessing they periodically flood their inner shell chambers with water or fill them with air to float so im guessing they arnt that heavy

Mine are about an inch long, or just shy of.
