I dunno, I found a site that says to use 50ppm ammonia(no additives)for a week and do hefty water changes, said it wont kill the bacteria at all but will nuke everything else in the tank....

<--- uses ghost shrimp for snail control.


They only go after the pond snails, they leave the MTS alone. They are kinda vicious with their prey.
