Hi everyone, I had a thread under fish diseases in October ( thanks to all those who helped me save Boomer, he's alive and well) but I have a problem in his NEW tank with those dang snails that made his old tank uninhabitable...I don't know how they got in the new tank,they are very tiny and I don't want them in there, I have rescued as many as I can and given them to a lady who actually wants them and I am wondering how long do I have to wait to salt the water, which will take care of any miniscule snails I have missed? because as much as I hate killing anything they made Boomer sick not long ago and I almost lost him. I salted the tank for the first time ever about the 19th October, he's a Fighting fish ie Betta Fish...and I can't recall how much I put in for his 34 litre tank. Thank you :) The snails?...I have no idea what type but I was told they likely came in on the plants and salt water will kill them,so now that I have netted all the ones I can see I want to make sure there are none hiding that I haven't seen.....
