One slice of raw cucumber added in the evening and removed the next morning will drag out every tiny snail in your tank within weeks..!
Or keep a tank of puffers – when twice a week is enough, or you will run short of food..!

I tried every type of veggie I think, non-worked.

I am going to try adding a picture to prove my point. Even my fan shrimps get in on the act..!

What do you exactly do, I guess I could try it again but I think most of the snails are gone.

Just tell me step by step.

Couldn't be simpler. Once a week I cut three inches from a fresh cucumber, trim off the skin, cut into thin ¼ inch slices, and just dump it into all my tanks [I do have an awful lot of tanks..!]
All my fish eat it, all my shrimps eat it, and it is a total snail magnet..!

Well I tried it and it never worked for some reason, I guess I could try again but I think all my snails are pretty much gone (manually picked them out.)

Is it the type of snail I have maybe? I have gilled snails.

Cucumber attracts all of my snails – Ram's horn, Apple, and MTS. As you can see from my first picture, they can't get enough of it..!

Well i'll try it again tonight.

So get a cucumber, cut the middle and skin out, put it in there right before lights out then in the morning take it out?

Don't cut the middle out, that's the bit they like the best. And you can do it at anytime of day or night.
