A Lot o Snails

Was wondering what the best way to get rid of snails was. I remember someone posted a way to get them all clumped together on a piece of lettuce or something like that. Just wondering cause I need to take a bunch out of my tanks before there's way too many of them.

Get a small glass jar like a salt shaker. Remove the top. Be sure the jar is clean. Then put a small piece of lettuce or perhaps some fish food in the jar, and fill it with aquarium water. Carefully sink it on the bottom of the aquarium. The next day it will have lots of small snails inside! remove them and repeat the process.Sometimes AQ salt works but most of the time the snails already develop tolerance to the salt so......Copper sulfate works too but too dangerous for other fish. Well you can get a puffer fish since they eat snails, but does not work well with betta....clown loaches are good at getting rid of snails but they have to be house in a group of 5-6

Or you can get an assassin snail and that will take care of your snail problem

Assassin Snails will remove them all, and they are great to have in a tank.

I had pondered assassin snails, though I would have to get a few because my 20g is divided into 4 sections and I would need 1 in my 10g. How big do assassins get?
