    First, collect as many of the excess snails as possible.
    Then list them on e-bay; you'd be shocked at what some folks will pay for the critters.
    Bag them in a ziploc with a damp piece of paper towel, not water.
    Offer free shipping. Anything under 13 oz can go First Class Mail. A small box, sandwich-size bag, and wet paper towel will be less than that.

    My fish tank is overwhelmed with snails- I have an assassin snail but the population grows faster then he can handle- If I get a YoYo loach and he eats all the snails what will he eat then,
    Thank you

    He probably wouldn't eat ALL the snails, and since what's left would continue to breed, he should have plenty of future snails to feed on. Also, research yo-yo loaches to see what else they eat. Snails are probably not their only food source.
