Assasin snails, loaches like clown or yoyo if you have space. I keep assassin snails in all my tanks except the 20 gallon where the coaches reside at the moment.

I've found the pond snails having orgies in my filters!!! (I was wondering about the faint sounds of house music & clinking glasses @ 2:00 AM!)

I don't sweat it. I remove what I can, when I can. I find the babies really tough to handle, and I can only get at the egg sacs on the glass. I have a good friend that is a director of the Boston Macological Club (a shell club but they study mollusks, I know, nerd alert). I asked him what to do, and he said to return them to a local pond where they will be food for larger fish (circle of life & so on) BUT I really don't have the time to visit a pond all the time. I'm thinking of just getting a jar w/ a salt solution to drop them in, hoping for a quick death.

4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.
