Got snails? I do

About 200+, How many snails are to many...I mean before they become detremental... They keep having more and more babies. How do you make them stop? Anyone want some baby snails?

If anyone knows, I'd love to know why/how your snails are multiplying so rapidly... or even at all. Doesn't seem like many people here have that experience. I sure haven't.

I wish I could answer that too... The new growth on my snails shells are unbelievable. I dont do anything special except water changes and keep fluctuations to a minimum, and feed Kent microvert food once a week. Hmm maybe thats it... Since November there is about a 1/2 inch of new shell on the snails...

My snails have grown noticably but I haven't noticed any reproduction. Maybe I'll try the kent microvert as an experiment.

Usually they will die out as the food supply dwindles.
