I have a major ramshorn snail problem. And before I even get into it the problem is not over feeding. I have had a 55 gallon in my basement no lights, heat, filtration, food, or even aeration. The tank has not moved and is in a completely dark room since February. The lowest temp I've recorded was 59°f and Low and behold there's probably over 300 ramshorn snails in there. So I have two other tanks that have an infestation as of right now. I have a 29 gallon betta tank with a breeding pair and I am utterly sick of cleaning the endless amounts of feces from the snails not to mention they clog my filter and throw off all my levels. I completely removed all the driftwood and plants, sucked the gravel, removed any leaves with egss and let the wood sun dry for two days. Put the tank back together and within a month bam a ton of ramshorn's. I have a 75 gallon with a minor infestation but I have nerites and black devil snails in there currently. I don't want to go the algeafix method. I was curious if a) I got an assassin snail would it solve the problem b) if I did get one how many c) how could I feed them once they've gone through the ramshorn's. I also have an adf who is all alone and my kid would like a snail or two for the tank he's been with 4 Ms with no issues but our tanks are specific to the continent of origin (other than snails due to my experience and knowledge in finding them) so I was curious if anyone knows of any African snails that you can keep in a aquarium?? ANY advice or opinions welcome!
