    I guess 850R was right--there's always more than one.

    I miss my pond snail a little less now.
    15 gal: 1 butt-ton Malaysian trumpet snails.
    20 gal: 20+ various molly and platy fry.
    55 gal: 40 neon tetras.
    75 gal: 2 Taiwan reef cichlids, 3 pelmatochromis nigrofasciatus juveniles.

    There's always more than two.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Soon you will have a dozen, then a dozen dozen, then countless thousands. It took me a very long time to get my tanks snail free. Lots of countless hours picking them out of the tanks. Actually put assassin snails (anentome helena) in the tank to take care of the pest snails. Assassin snails feed off of other snails.

    The pest snails in my tank are likely Acura physa, reproduce asexually and will lay batches of eggs from 5 to 75.

    Anenetome helenas will slowly cut down on the population.
    Scrape algae amd diatoms if it's not being removed by algae eaters.
    I use apple snails, Otos, and bn pleco to help keep algae under control to reduce food supply.
    Use left over veggie rinds if you have veggies feeders to attract the offending interloper snails, then take them out and crush them. Sometimes that will net 30 odd casualties.
    If you find eggs on the glass, crush them with an algae cleaning magnet.

    I still have them in my tank but the population is being slowly cut back.

    @850r there's always more than 75!

    Unusually I have nothing more to add...
