This is the tank I've had since mid April. I have 6 Zebra Danios, 2 Leopard danios and 6 neon tetras in there. I also have about 30 snails in there. Every time I try to get them all out, and I think I've got them all, I always seem to find more. It's really quite annoying now!!

try putting a piece of letuce in the tank after lights out and in the morning snails should be all over it, take it out and trough it away. this won't get them all at once but I will get some. you could keep doing this until they are all gone

I saw someone recommend canned green beans, too. Throw one in at night, in the morning it supposedly should be covered in snails. Then ship to me.

Yup, too many puffers to be able to keep a good stock of little snails so far.

Buy a spare tank, throw in some water and some snails and you should start breeding snails like crazy boxermom.  I put two in a half gallon of plain water and soon I had lots of baby snails.

I have several ramshorns and a couple of mysteries in my 10 gallon hospital/quarantine tank. No babies so far even though I'm overfeeding. Course its also used as a grow-out tank for guppy and molly fry and its likely that they're eating any eggs.

No it's not crowded. They have plenty of room to swim around because I don't have much in the tank - 1 rock, 1 cave, 1 small airstone and 3 plants. Why do you ask? Is it over-stocked?

I've always thought that it might be over-stocked, but I do water changes once a week, and everything is fine.

It's probably close to overstocked. But was just wondering if it looked crowded. As long as you do your water changes they will be ok.

I am not sure if Butterfly is thinking it is over stocked because the gallon system is slightly different over the pond in the Uk. 15 uk gallons is more like 12 (ish?) gallons in the Us I think.
Not sure if this helps?

Oh yes I know. Thanks Lucy.  I think the tank is 15US gallons. Ever since I first joined this forum, I've always talked about the tanks in US gallons, to make it easier, and to stop people getting confused, as most people here are from US and use US gallons.
