snail problem

I posted it here:

http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewtopic.php?t=9558

but was wondering if anyone wanted to add anything. Basically, I am fishing about 5-10 snails out of my tank per day.

There are smaller loaches that will eat snails like the yoyo loach but I think you are avoiding loaches altogether. Just keep pulling them out you can mail them to me my loaches will eat em!

Do you have inverts?, if you don't, their is a product called hand a snail which kills all the eggs that the snails lay. Also, keep in mind that they usually place their eggs above water so check to see if there are any eggs and remove them. I am sue that once you put that product in, it will be resolved

Yeah, I had another friend recommend Had a Snail. I'm going to look for it this weekend. I was hoping to just fish them out, but to be honest, a week of that has not improved the numbers. I fear for my plants...

They appear umm not sure what you mean by trumpet shaped. They have a shell and it ends in a point....

Seriously some people here would love them for there loaches, I raise them but my supply is depleting sort of the opposite problem your having. I'll take a hundred! and pay for shipping of coarse they ship very well.
