I have a slight issue with my tank atm, i cant seem to get rid of the crazy amount of snails i have. I was told getting a few assasin snails would do the trick but it hasnt made any difference. I have tried leaving a leaf of lettuce in the tank that was a fail. I was told easiest way / safest was to physically remove them with a net... not as easy as it sounds, its like... they know.
I'm so sick of the damn things i'm thinking of removing the water, gravel, plants and rocks and cleaning it.
I'd like to point out that i will be re-using the same water that is curerntly in the tank, i just need to remove all the snail eggs and snails so i can actually appreciate the beautiful baby guppies i now have swimming in my tank.
The question is, will this cause my tank to start cycling again? like i said i would still be using the original gravel, media and water that is currently in the tank to keep all the fish friendly bacteria.
I'm aiming to do this today when i get home after work.
(Sorry if this has been asked before, i tried searching but i couldnt find anything).
Thanks in advance! :)
