Baby Snails in a DIRTY Tank

I have dozens of baby (Pest) Snails.
I have more eggs all over my plants.
I also have some worms and tenticle things
that are from overfeeding.
I want to get rid of them but I don't want
to loose my babies.
HELP!

How often do you feed? Most of the time the little "wormy" things are from over feeding. As far as the snails there is a product that will help get rid of them but I don't know what it is.

I want the snails!

Yes I am overfeeding!
I think I will loose the baby snails in the process
of medicating the tank.
(Because you have to take the snails out)
The babies are so new and small I don't think its possible
to move them.
I wonder if I can at least save the unhatched eggs???

maybe I missed something in another thread? why are you medicating the tank?
why are you overfeeding?
Your chance of saving the eggs is pretty nil, you would be more succesful trying to save the babies.

Long Night

Well...Tank is clean and problem solved with out medicating.
(No more worms or Hydo-something with tenicels)
Turns out most people are trying to find out how
to get rid the same snails I was worried about saving.
I'm guessing the PESTs hitched a ride on my plants.
I was suprised how easy it was to flush the water roaches.
All the other folks are gonna be fine.
(Even after the jealous cat nocked over the fish bucket...Don't ask!)
Hopefully my 3 african dwarf frogs, 5 guppies and Ivory
Mystery Snail will be happy to meet the Malaysian Trumpet Snails
comming in the mail. Wish me luck and no more disasters.
Word of wisdom - Don't over feed!

Thank God...

Belive me if it wasn't I would not only have time consuming hobby
but an expensive one as well. Who would have thought trying
to keep a pretty and clean home for such little guys would be so
much trial and error. Sorry for the ones lost in error.
Unfortunatly this wasn't my first disaster.
My boyfriend had this tank for two year (water and running).
We thought it would be fine to just through some frogs in it.
WRONG I lost like 4 before I got smart and started fresh.
OOPS! Now I know.
