I am starting to get a snail problem in my tank, i am assuming they came from the live plants i have. Is their a type of tropical fish that is good for a 10 gallon tank that will eat the snails , and will get along with my plates.
If you had a larger tank, I would suggest loaches, but your 10 gal tank is too small. My suggestion is to smash them against the glass when you see them and your platies will have a nice treat. You can also float a piece of lettuce before going to bed, and then remove the snail covered lettuce from the tank and throw it away. This is not a cure though. You can also remove any eggs you see stuck to the walls of your tank. Also, check how much you are feeding your fish, and see if you need to cut back. Most fish only need to be fed once a day.
mollies are a great cure for snails and algae! as mollies are alot like goldfish and never stop eating or even gouramis will eat snails, certain tetras will eat them too like black skirts, white skirts, serapes and blindcave tetras i know love snails other then that you can buy some snail X from most LFS's and that wont harm your fish but kill your infestation
Anything you put in your tank to kill snails can potentially kill your fish also. It may also cause an ammonia or Nitrite spike because it will kill the snails in your substrate and you may not get them all out. Just some thoughts
