Default Interesting creatures

I just thought I would post these pictures of some species that have found their way into my vivarium. The water snails are probably from the water plants that I purchased from the pet store. These have been great for keeping my water clean. I don't have much algae growth due to them. The slugs have been interesting because I have no idea where they came from, but from what I have seen they have been nothing but beneficial. The picture below is one of them eating the bacteria or some sort of growth off the side of the tank. Anyways, Just thought I would throw this out there. I have heard a number of different things about slugs and invasive species that you don't want in there, but I have yet to come across any problems.

Definitely a slug and not a planaria. Keep an eye on your plants, be sure they aren't getting eaten, especially as the slugs start to increase in numbers. If the slugs get past about 1", I'd take them out so they don't stress your frogs
