I have a forty gallon tank with a pond snail problem. It started with ONE
from a live plant I had shipped in and now I'm up to 50+ in only a few weeks! I've been removing them manually, but they repopulate fast due to the algae growth I have.
As a natural fix I'm thinking of adding dwarf loaches, but I don't want to overpopulate my tank either.
Right now I have five adult mollies (babies come and go), five otocynclus, and eight corydoras.
Could I add the dwarf loaches without overpopulating, and how many?
