I have too many snails!
I'm not a regular on this forum, but I hope someone can help me. Earlier this year I traded several guppies for a nice big plant for my aquarium. Even though I looked it over carefully for snails, I must have missed at least one, and now I have hundreds! And I'm not kidding. I've picked out so many that my hands get all pruney and still they're everywhere. I think I read somewhere that if you attach a piece of string to a piece of zucchini and drop it in the tank, securing the string, that the snails will begin to eat the zuchini and you can pull it up and dispose of the snails. Ever heard of that and did it work for you? Does anyone have a better idea? These snails are brownish gray, round and pretty small. I was infested with them a few years ago and worked hard to finally get rid of them. I have a 55 gallon planted tank and can't use chemicals. Please, any and all comments and suggestions will be so appreciated. Nancy
