I have a snail population that I am unhappy with, too many free hithchiker snails to count. Potato method isn't working too well, as my fish are at the office and they turn the light on earlier than I get there. And potato goo is icky. I hear the potatoes in my area are softer, so maybe that's the problem.
Tank-10G planted, with a huge sword, anacharis, java fern, and couple round leaf plants banded to wood whose name I can't remember ATM. :) Filtered with the stock Aquen filter that came with the tank, heated to ~80 deg. Big wood pieces & plants make for lots of hidey holes. I could always add another chunk of wood/more plants. :)
Water chem is finally right again after accidentally making fish & potato soup out of my tank. (Everyone survived, thanks to water changes and the miracle that is Prime)
Residents: 2 fat little otocinclus, 1 male halfmoon betta, 18 gazillion hitchhiker snails. Oto's are shy, but industrious and adorable little critters, but are not eating the algae fast enough..and I don't feed Fluffy the Betta when I see that he's already full of snail babies... but he needs help controlling the population.
I'm interested in finding a tankmate that can handle snail management. I don't mind them being in there, but there are so many they really block the view!
