The Snail and the Christmas Tree

My red spot nerite snail has discovered the Christmas trees!  He was zooming around eating diatoms on a couple of them yesterday. 

















Before I decorated my tank for Christmas, I wiped away all the algae and diatoms so it would look nice in the photos and videos.  Well after that, the diatoms started coming back, but only in small patches here and there.  So now the snails have gotten much more inventive in finding good spots to graze!
