Feed less. The colony will collapse itself.

I had some hitchhikers on driftwood. I spent weeks kollikI the snails before I realized where the eggs were. I basically had to take each ornaments and plants out and search for snails and eggs. I did that and the next day I found a few more and did it agaoa but not as extensively. That was about a week ago and I have not seen anymore eggs and have found maybe 8 more snails. So it'll take work but that's how I did it. If they cone back again tbouthI an foster homing my snails and getting an assassin to get rid of them.

Thanks for the suggestion!! I may have to do that tho its a lot of work. Will an assassin take out my red racer nerite? One fish store told me yes.. The other told me no lol.

Yes, assassin snails will go after the nerite at some point. There are even cases of them killing large mystery snails! Removing the eggs and all the large snails you see is your best bet, IMO. I've successfully taken out an infestation by only removing all the adults I saw. Been snail free for months.
