I've met two people who had a mass overpopulation and it clogged their filter.

Now, for me when I do water changes with gravel siphoning half the snails get sucked up

keep the water clean and you shouldn't have a population issue with them. i keep some in my fry tank because even though the conditions are right for them to breed in vast numbers, the fry enjoy eating their young and keep the population from growing.

If there isn't an abundance of food, they won't explode. I love them. They eat algae better than apples, and poo so much less.

Okay so I switched the fake plants with little scrapes of hornwort and a 2 leaf java fern I didn't want in the big tank. He seems to like them.. know how I know? He has laid 4 ( that I can find) egg bunches o.o I will soon be over run with snails! Do you guys know if I can feed the eggs or the babies to my betta as a snack?

I am glad he wasnt in my big tank haha cause that would be a lot of snails haha

you can simply scrape the egg sacs away. They won't hatch and you won't be overrun.

I squish them (makes it so the shell won't lodge) and give them to my bettas they love them as a treat!

I have a pond snail named sheldon who I took to when I found him stowed away in a plant. I've managed to control it in the betta tank by control feeding Kyon, I handfeed him 3 pellets a meal and don't let any sink to the bottom. I'm probably not doing sheldon much good. I havn't a clue how to look after a snail without him breeding like crazy. I wiped all my ramshorn snails out last time I treated for white spot in my 15g still got a couple in there but no where near as many.
