Pop the lettuce in and turn the lights off on your tank go back 1-2 hours later and it will be covered if u leave it to long they will eat it all and move on . hope it's helps x

You can try algae wafers too.

Why bother with the trap? Just sink the piece of lettuce, turn off the lights for a few hours, and it'll have the same, if not better effect then the trap!

Ok I'm sick of this now but nothing is working! The snails aren't interested in anything I put in there? There's that many they blocked up my spray-bar last night!!

Can you get your hands on any assassin snails? Maybe ebay or aquabid?

I can get them from my lfs but I don't want any snails atall. Would a clown loach work just as well coz id prefer one of them as long as it will leave my other fish/fry alone?
