Snails! Snails! And More Snails!

I know I have posted this sometime ago. I have a snail problem. I used a blue snail removing chemical and it got rid of them for like 2 months and now they are back. What do I do?

If your tank is large enough, you could get a clown loach.

I too have a slight snail problem. They have taken up residence in my canister filter. Just try to be diligent in squishing any eggs you find and decrease the amount of food you are feeding your fish. Really try to make sure a bunch of food isn't falling into the gravel. When you do a water change really make sure you vac the gravel well.
You can also try putting in a piece of lettuce or spinach tied to a rock. Do this after lights out. You will have a bunch hanging on in the morning and you can just pull it out and toss the snails.
