    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.

    lol, welcome to planted tanks. =]

    Depending on the types of snails you have, they can work quite well and eradicate them fairly quickly, or it might take a while. Ramshorns seem to take quite a while. Pond snails and MTS not so much.

    Thanks for the help. I guess I'll just have to wait and see if I have a real problem on my hands or not. Stupid snails......

    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.

    I'm in agreement to the same degree. A few snails here and there don't bother me. An overabundance of snails turns them into pests. They also wouldn't be so bad if they didn't munch on plants.
