Thanks, Holly! My name's actually Caitlin, but I like to use the Spanish version for usernames online and stuff. I don't think your panty hose technique is barbaric, it's ingenious! I have been wondering how I could get all the water out without picking through and trying to remove every single little snail, and that never even occured to me. I think I'm going to do it tonight, granted I can find some ripped panty hose I don't want anymore.

Raimeiken, I acquired my snails by going to my LFS and asking if I could have some of the little snails that coated the fake plants in one of their tanks. They were more than happy to give them to me, removing the plants and shaking them into a bag. Voila, free snails! I'm sure any LFS would be just as eager to get rid of its snails.

Buy my snails

If you want snails so bad, PLEASE buy mine. Although you can probably get them just about anywhere, Id be more than happy to sell you mine!

I don't think you'll want to use the snails from outside. Who knows what they've picked up and will introduce into your tank (some flukes are transmittable to humans too). I don't know how long you'd have to QT them to be rid of anything like that (if it's possible?).

I keep mine in a bucket w/a little gravel, a piece of driftwood and some plants I've left floating. They lay their eggs on the plants. I feed them zuchini, algae wafers, and drop in flake for any ghost shrimp in there. It doesn't have any filtration, and I don't do water changes all that often - sometimes I just top off.

Good call Brent!


dhs9831 if you want to get rid of snails, try putting in a piece of lettuce and pulling it out when the snails are on it. You may need to do this numerous times, but it will help keep the snail population controlable. BTW~
