Saltwater snails

I have one year old reef aquarium and somewhere along the way I picked up some snails. They multiplied like crazy. How can I get rid of them safely? Thanks for any kind of help.

Not sure why you'd want to get rid of them, most people pay a pretty penny for CUC inverts. Short of picking them out by hand, feeding at the appropriate level for your fish will thin the herd.

I wouldn't normally want to get rid of them but the number of them is at least 100. I think that's way to many for a 46 gal. They only come out at night and I heard putting in some zucchini will attract them then you can simply take out the zucchini but that hasn't worked for me.
