have you tried to place either lettuce or zuccini(cucumber)
in the tank overnight then remove the snails in the morning,
reduce the amount you are feeding the fish,as snails will eat whatever is left over.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
