Whether it's the opae or MTS it seems they all enjoy feeding on the surface.

Every night I see the MTS on the surface. They are just feeding off all the biofilm on surface.

Wow! So that's how it works. I have only seen that with my baby snails. But never thought it would be possible for adult snails. I think it works best when the water has a biofilm on the surface. So cool :lol:
