I have given in. The snails have been overwhelming. Even removing 50 a week, they are still reproducing faster then I can remove them. So here is what I am doing: 1. Reduce feeding of the fish by 50% 2. Put in a snail trap - plastic container with lettuce IMG_20170719_105048 by RSababady posted Jul 19, 2017 at 6:57 PM IMG_20170719_104944 by RSababady posted Jul 19, 2017 at 6:57 PM I have read a lot and know there are different opinions on this subject - I have chosen this route and am opening this thread to share the experience. Please let me know your thoughts - my goal is to eradicate the snails from the tank (450 litres with plants and fish, external filter, UV, CO2 and automatic feeder). What do you think?
