out of control snails
Well, I finally got brave and added live plants to my 20 gallon aquarium. I put in two swords and a few plants that float on the top and look like mini cabbages, I don't remember what they were called.
Anyways, a long with the plants came snails and now two weeks later I have an out of control snail population. I'm in the processing of moving all the fish in my tank (a bunch of hybrid live bearer fry ranging in size and 1 old, old male dalmation molly) into a new tank. The LFS said I could put a goldfish in the 20 gallon and he would eat snails. Is this a good idea? They also suggested using lettuce and pulling them out that way.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, my plan for the 20 is the make a tetra tank once the fry are moved and snails are gone.
