I'm new here, but chose this as my first post. I had a bad snail infestation as well, I moved all my chichlids to a 30 gallon quarantine tank and moved one of my air stones over as well. To rid my tank of the snails without killing and of my live plants, I bubbled straight co2 for a few days into the tank. The plants loved the high levels of carbon dioxide and the snails found themselves in a naturally toxic environment. after a few days of seeing no new snail activity, I replace the CO2 tank with regular air and let the tank balance out a week then reintroduced my cichlids one at a time and suffered no casualties other than the snails.
