They sneak in with plants and multiply by the hundreds. Like Triton, I crush them against the glass and let the fish eat them. I also vacuum them up when I clean the gravel. Seems like once you have them you always have them, but they don't cause any real problems as long as you take steps to keep their numbers under control. I'm considering trying assassin snails to see how well that works.

I don't really consider them to be a problem, I kind of enjoy seeing snails in my tanks. I just wish they didn't reproduce so rapidly.
