Cinderwolf Yup, so. I have already taken 3-5 more little snails out of the 6 gal. 2 went into the snail tank, one I accidentally smooshed. I guess I have a snail problem now. Sheesh.

Cinderwolf Haha yea, I just tossed the plants ( sicne thye became covered in eggs) and I smooshed all the ones on the tank when I cleaned out the tank. Also. I found a tiny snail in the 6 gal! GAH so now I have 2 snails, DJ Frankie ( the first snail) and Tito, they tiny one. I sunk a cucumber piec ein the 6 gal to see if I can catch anymore of them. If i do i will add to the critter keeper. i was gonna give the eggs as a treat ot bennie, but today is is his fast day so meh. Next time.

Sheldon31 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.

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

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

Cinderwolf 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

Sena Hansler yeah :/ I have algae booming in my 20... I may need to get some of the snails from the bucket I used for the live plant quarantine xD

Silverfang 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.
