Get a freshwater puffer to eat them :)

This is what I do; put a slice of cucumber in the tank, wait some time (overnight), the snails will be all over it, then throw it out.

One 29 Gallon - Lots of Fish
One 10 Gallon - One White Crayfish
One 15 Gallon - Baby Bullfrogs

Check out Assassin Snails. (Anentome helena)

They eat other snails, will not eat themselves, and reproduce very very slowly.
