If you really dont like them, place a piece of cucumber in your tank at night. In the morning you will probably have snails all over it. Pull it out and toss it.
True. I had a huge outbreak of ramshorn snails due to over feeding. I was purposely over feeding to keep fry alive in the tank. I got assassins and they cleared up the issue in no time. They do however reproduce quickly also, contrary to popular belief. Wish I had known you wanted some a month ago, I got rid of about 100 of them. I could have sent you many of them for free. Now they seem to be taking a break from the breeding. Less food in the tank, I assume.
