Sell them or give them away. I always see people selling "Pest Snails" on craigslist.

I pick a jar full of them out of my tank every waterchange day and take them to my LFS.
They hand them out on request and are quite happy to take them.
Not sure I'm making any headway against the population though

My Angelicus loaches eat them up. I think I spelled that right. They are listed here in the fish profiles :)

The Yoyo Loach will also happily snack on them.

Well you could add lettuce to the tank over night. The next morning snails should be all over it. Same thing with cucumber or zucchini. Then you can easily pull the piece out snails and all. Some fish will eat them but before adding them please make sure the fish is compatible with your tank as a whole.
