    I got some hitching snails with my Java Moss from my LFS Thursday. I have a planted tank and don't want them. I read that if I put lettuce in the tank at night I could take the snails out on it in the morning. I put lettuce in around 2am and took it out at around 7:30am. There were no snails on the lettuce. How can I get ride of them. I'm getting Red Cherry Shrimp so can't use chemicals and besides, I don't really want to kill them, just make them gone. Help

    Mine never responded to lettuce either.

    This is a DIY that I made from a water bottle. Simply put in algae wafers and VOILA!

    Try cucumber or courgette, snails can't resist those
