So I have a lovely 5.5 gallon tank. Heated, filtered, planted (lots of java fern and an Amazon Sword that is having issues growing back to size after a bad water change. Suggestions there would awesome as well :) ). Fertilized substrate. I use this stuff.
It has a veiltail betta male and (somewhere, he's hiding again) an Otocinclus.
Also, somehow there's gotten to be a bunch of baby snails in there. They're eating at my Java fern and making lots of holes in the leaves. And I want them gone.
SO. My question is, how do I get rid of them without damaging the "ecosystem" in the tank? The tank is cycled (I tested my tap water once. The ammonia levels from the conditioned water was higher than the tanks levels. Oi.). It would be hard to uproot and replant the ferns, and i don't want to harm them they are doing so well. I've heard aquarium salt will get rid of them...should I add that? Thanks!!
