you can cut down on their breeding by making sure you are not overfeeding your fish. Personally I let my snails go since they are good for the ecosystem, though it is time to get rid of some of my mts :S

I love snails, I've never had a population explosion. They only overpopulate when they get plenty of food.

I keep pond and ramhorns: mts starve is my tanks.

I wouldn't mind snails if my pop explosion wasn't the common. Pond snail. Other snails are cooler. Mine just sit on the top of the water line and chill

I had the same exact problem in my ten gallon! I'd say a couple hundred at least...I put in 7 assassin snails, and *POOF* they were gone in a week or two..I know a lot of people say that assassins aren't effective, but I found them very much so. You just have to get more than one or two I usually hate any kind of snail, but I love my assassins! They're really neat! And they breed VERY, VERY slowly...which is an upside!
