Hi. i am shirishneetadixit frm mumbai india. I am very glad to have become a member of the aquatic community. I have set up a fresh water planted tank about a month back. The tank is well set up with the plants growing properly & fishes healthy. I change 20% water every 15 days. I am facing only one problem, viz formation of small black snails. Anti snail formulations are also not helping. Please guide me. Thak you

clown loaches eat snails as far as i know, and i think weekly water changes would be better, i do with all my tanks see signiture below for tanks and fish in the tanks

Depending on the size of your tank, a trio or sextet of Botia would solve your snail problem, and prosper at the job. I would bet money those are Physa species pond snails. It'll take the loaches some time to pare the snail herd down to a manageable level, but they will do it.
