How many snails for a 14 gallon biocube?


Please help! I have a 14 gallon biocube and I'm growing lots of green hair algae. I have read that the best thing to prevent it is to get snails. I already have two snails, but they aren't doing much cleaning. If you have any suggestions, please respond as soon as possible!!! Thanks!!!

for your size one should be good enough.....if he isnt eating the hair algae quick enough you can always get another one
