HELP!!! Snails in planted aquarium "eating plants"

Hello,

I recently purchased some plants, a few days later I notices little holes in some of the leaves. Yesterday I notices a small snail on one of the leaves (about the size of a sprinkle on a cupcake). I want to get rid of these naturally without harming my fish, also I cannot purchase a loach because I have cherry shrimp in the tank. Any suggestions?l

Maybe you should try some Assassin Snail. They'll viciously attack and eat other snails in your tank while leaving fish and other creatures alone, and they dont eat live plants. They don't reproduce like crazy either. Also, it's been said that leaving a piece of lettuce in a small open container over night will cause most of the snails in your tank to congregate on it so you can remove them first thing in the morning.
