    hey everyone

    ive had my tank going a couple of months and i found after putting plants in my tank i started getting a family of snails appear, there are about 8 in total and they look like this http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/images21/SnailsinAquarium2.jpg

    i dont know any info about them really like good water temp, food etc for them because if they get to big or abundent (sp) i will put them in my girlfriends pond. my tank is currently around the 28 degrees mark and they are fine

    If you overfeed, they'll overrun your tank. I'd get them out asap, as in yesterday. If you put a piece of lettuce or cucumber in the tank - they'll cover it and you can remove them.

    Yep, and they'll probably reproduce like crazy in the pond. They're not too picky about water parameters.
