  1. #1

    Default Snails! Really?

    I dropped in two pellets for my corys. Obviously they didn't get any of it.

    Look at all of them! Did you want snails? I hope so...

    Heck NO. I bloody hate them. But, it does work when they get in a big glob like this to suck them up with a hose.

    Edited my own post for swearing! :)

    LOL! Why not get assassin snails?
    My sister got an infestation in her Fluval Edge... when she noticed, it was too late, and some of her fish were dying. When she took drastic measures, she discovered they had completely clogged the inside of the HOB filter.

    Even though she used some kind of chemical that kills snails, her apple snail was able to return to the aquarium and has grown quite a bit in the 3-4 months since.... what was my point... oh yeah...

    Get some assassin snails :D

    Why don't you like snails? I've got several types in my tank and I enjoy watching them as if they're fish.

    Assassin Snails really do get a handle on a tank overrun by snails. I really love my little assassin buddies . I still have a few snails here and there which is okay with me. I just hate when they are everywhere. IMO it takes away from looking at the fish if you have a zillion pest snails all over your tank walls and on plants.

    I do agree with you Lady Hobbs. When you have a whole lot of pesty snails on a sinking pellet or algae wafer, it makes snail removal much easier.

    No, I sure can't. Stopped feeding cukes and zucchini months ago. Drop in an algae waffer for my corys and the snails come out of the woodwork before the corys get any of it. Of course I move plants from tank to tank so that means they get spread to all the tanks. *sigh
