  1. Unhappy lettuce baiting snails

    0 Not allowed!
    it seems like my snails are very content munching on what they are able to find in my tank. except lettuce! I have been trying to bait them in the evening with no luck. coming down and hour before i usually turn the lights on to catch them isn't working either. what in the world. lol poke me with a fork, i think I'm done...

    Will i be forever stuck with these snails? or will taking them out by hand whenever i see them eventually be enough to be rid of them?

    Do you have access to assassin snails, they make quick work of pest snails.

    I don't. there was someone selling them on craigslist here. I contacted them but they seemed shady and unable to stick to a time to meet up. I looked into having some sent from online but that is crazy expensive and it's really cold here and in alaska we generally don't get mail at our door. There are 40 mailbox posts at the end of streets (main streets not the street your house is on lol) and online places seem to require someone at home to sign for delivery. we use a post office type place but I wouldn't make it there to sign when they were delivered. It would probably be a few hours wait since mail gets there around 1 and i get off at 4.

    I was hoping lettuce would do the trick so i wouldn't have to add anything else to my tank. Not sure what to do now...

    You could try other vegetables. Spinach, collards, cucumber slices. They may bite on one of those instead. Just thinking out loud, what if you dosed with meds? The ones that say don't use with inverts? lol Might just wipe them out. Unless you have shrimp or something. Don't know how much stress it would put on the fish though.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    How long do you leave the lettuce in the tank?

    I didn't think of other veggies. I will try them!

    I put the lettuce in the tank at about 8pm. 930pm is when i turn the lights out for the night. I checked it at 5am because I read to check it about an hour before you usually turn the lights on, no dice. :(

    Just spent 2 hours doing my wc. Picking them out by net. One of my gourami swam into the net and didn't want to come out. i think my fish are getting used to seeing me struggle with these snails. lol I turned the lights out after because i figured they might be stressed with me trying to get as many pond snails as i could out when i noticed 2 more within reach. lol is it possible to hand pick an entire population of pond snails out? please say yes...

    It takes a long time. Even while using a snail trap (which got dozens), I still hand caught a lot of them. It took days to get them all out, and when I thought they were all gone... they repopulated. lol
