you will know that the problem would be sulfur if the water comes out of the tap smelling like rotten eggs...if it id just in the tank then it is coming from the substrate as obsidian said..

That's odd. I have malaysian trumpet snails. Aren't they supposed to help?

I believe that the function of snails are to keep the algae at bay in an aquarium. I don't think that any snails will help keep a tank from smelling like rotten eggs.

MTS have always worked well for keeping the substrate aerated when i had them...never had a problem with a tank they were in...but then again , i probably had a couple of hundred of them in each tank.

Betta they should help, but it might not be quite enough for some reason. You might not have enough of them down there, or someplace might just really be attracting mulm more than another creating an annoying section of stink. Do the stick thing and water change thing and it will go away. Keep up with at least weekly changes etc. You will want to stir your substrate regularly if you are having the smell issue, to keep it at bay and have a healthy tank.

Should have done your homework. They eat MTS like candy.

I thought they'd go after the ramshorns first. They're more plentiful. Anyways, I have another tankful of mts.
