Didn't know. couldn't see pics at work.

could be.

But to me I just don't worry.

I always get a snail bloom initially on planted tanks. Then a year later only a few are left.

Meanwhile they are cleaning up the tank and even providing some food for the fish.

So I just don't worry.

Jonandjo, will a small female convict cichlid work in your tank? Some individuals are very peaceful and I've never known a covict that didn't love snails. Snail problem solved and you get an awesome fish for your enjoyment! Just a thought.
If you've seen one batch of eggs, there's probaly 5-10 more that you can't see.

They lay soooo many eggs. I dislike pond snails. As for getting rid of them, I'd say just build a snail trap? Then find somewhere to take them or something? A LFS might take them

Had to change the hate when I looked over at my tank and saw my two pond snails

Generally "snail trap" means blanched zucchini in the bottom of the tank, removing it with the snails on it and replacing with fresh zucchini.

My friend uses a small cup with a veggie inside so that the snails don't fall off when she picks up the veggie.
