yeah... come to think of it, I actually don't really recommend following the habits of a little kid when it comes to caring for an aquarium.

I have a question to add to this topic. Since I do have loaches, I am finding shells everywhere. Do they need to be removed ASAP like a dead fish would? Or can I wait and remove them during my weekly change. Its annoying to have to remove 3 shells everynight lol

On your issue, I would just keep doing what your doing and feed the fish less. From my little experiance and lots of research :) this seems to work well

The shells will do no harm; they are basically calcium and may slowly dissolve but not to any extent to cause issues. I tend to remove empty shells during a water change or I may leave them, however I feel at the time.

another trap ive seen used is in old tupper ware where cut a x into the top and put the food inside. the snails push in to get to the food but they wont push out cuz they will just crawl around in circles in the Tupperware.
