Snails in the Aquarium

Recommended Posts

Hi I have got African Cichlids and since I bought some duck weed from the Auctions I have a snail infestation :( GRRR They are eating the plants (Anbius & Java Fern) and I want to get rid of them. What is a safe way of getting rid of them without harming my fish and my plants?

Thanks

Simon

Depending on your cichlids they might just get eaten. If they don't borrow some clown loaches of someone. They should'nt be eating your aniubus though it has very thick leaves, I have snails in my tanks and they never eat them. You can also put in lettuce leaves waited down and remove it and the snails every morning.

you can control them easily enough by puting in any vegatable at night and removing it and the snails first thing in the morning. The only 100% method of elimination I know of is condies crystals. you need to remove the fish, but leave the plants. If you have a B/N in there, make sure they are all accounted for. I choose control cos the clean up uneaten food
