Snail, Snail, Snail...Oh look Another Snail, Snail...
Despite having been quite rigorous in my anti snail measures, quarantine, washing, inspecting, neurotic observation. I somehow ended up with a snail infestation. I suspect it happened when I changed my substrate from regular gravel to flourite. because I havent added anything new to my tank and the snails only showed up sometime afterwards.. Ive had my plants ornaments and Fish for well over a year and the flourite for since about august of last year. At first I noticed a tiny little cone shaped snail and quickly smashed it agianst the front glass, My fish didnt take any interest. Then I saw another one and smashed it as well and a few weeks later there were literally hundreds of them. I havent really done anything else as they seem to leave my plants alone and dont get into my filter or diffusor. So I decided to let them be for the time being. But now I look in my tank and it seems I have more snails than substrate. Ive got big snails Small snails, and little itty bitty snails on top of other snails. My plants seem to be doing well despite them. But what Id like to know from you guys is what I can do about them. I know this must be like the thousandth thread asking about this, so I apologize. I was thinking more along the lines of intorducing a snail eating fish in there.
Currently I have a spawning pair of kribs which you might of heard me (bragging/complaing) about in my threads named "Yippe my kribs have spawned again vol 5. this is getting old" or something along the lines. And I also have a bristle nose pleco in there. They all seem to get along in their 20 galon house. What other type of fish could I introduce..(even if only temporary) that could get along with the others
