Maybe they'd be okay if they didn't poop and breed everywhere!

don't much care for ponds, or how rapidly trumpets breed, but I need trumpets for my tanks

They're a new fascination for me I love mine!! I love watching them. I love that pond snails can swim :)
Olympia, can you get an assassin snail or 2?

I know assassins are small but I'd be terrified with my rabbit snail in there! :(
I'm going to start scooping them out today. What's a good way to kill them? For garden pests I just throw em into soaped up water.

I'll just use soap my dad would kill me if I wasted his valuable beer. Or just throw em down the toilet alive.. done that before. Heh.
Besides I don't need to lure them into anything, just throw em into something that'll kill em.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
