There's probably been tons of these posts on here in the past but I just wanted to share my snail trap I made with some online help. I find it difficult to feed my assassin snail algae wafers without all the other fish picking them up and moving them so I made this.
If anyone is interested, you just cut the top third off a 500ml plastic bottle with a blade or pair of scissors (please be careful!) push tiny hole in to both the remainder of the bottle and the top third you cut off so it can sink. For this you can use some BBQ skewers or a cork screw or small Philips driver. Turn the top third over and push it in to the bottom third.
When you are choosing a bottle, buy one that has the plastic wrap around that can be removed easily instead of the paper packaging and doesn't use any glue. Also use a drinking cap like this.
They have decent sized holes and create another conical obstacle to further trap the snails.
You will probably need a small pebble to help it sink but don't use gravel as it will be harder to pick the tiny snails out. Chuck and algae wafer or your food of choice in and away you go
Anyway I'm off to try this out nows
Thanks for reading.
