I practice snail birth control by removing the eggs, although some eggs get missed and hatch. I just gave away about 30 babies.

Sweet! I think the little guys are cool and I thought about introducing some on purpose but i've heard too many horror stories of peoples tanks being taken over. I've seen it in our tanks at the stores occasionally too...plenty of food for them there.
