Can you put a goldfish with a snail?

You can do this, however, please note that it is not recommended. Goldfish are coldwater fish which makes finding a suitable snail for a coldwater tank very difficult since the majority of snails sold at pet/fish stores are tropical. It is also likely that if you were to put a snail in with a goldfish the goldfish would probably harass it (i.e. trying to eat it, bumping into it, knocking it down).

What organisms are algae eaters?

Just to name a few: Plecostomus. Ask in the pet store if they have plecos. If you have goldfish, Don't get a pleco, as plecos are nocturnal and goldfish are not, whe the goldfish are in their state of rest, a pleco finds the vital protective slime coat of a goldfish quite tasty. they have also been known to suck the eyes out of some fish. they really do prefer a heated tank. Plecos can grow really big, so make sure you have a very large tank. other algae eaters for your aquarium include: Mystery/Apple snails (these breed like rabbits, so get one, or if you have a pet store near you that are willing to take the young snails off you hands, get multiple snails) Cory catfish (these would only survive in tropical tanks, as they are tropical fish).

What kind of conditions do water snails live in?

I recommend anything with water and space for the snails to eat. Basically any freshwater fish tank with be okay for the snails. I must tell you though, never to put snails in with beta fish because sometimes the beta fish will try to eat the snail so i recommend putting them in with goldfish or some other freshwater fish. I have a 10 gallon freshwater tank with a common goldfish and a golden inca snail and they live happily together. I hope this helps!
