Any suggestions on how to get rid of snails?? I am totally over run by snails. The tank in question is 20gal freshwater, I have Red Ludwigia, Java Fern? (lfs said that's what it is but doesn't look a thing like the ones in my book, I believe it is actually"Windelov)", and Frill plants. I have 3 White Clouds and a red-tailed shark in this tank and hopefully will be adding 4-6 Long-finned Serpae Tetras next week.
I have removed about 40 snails this week by hand. I placed lettuce in the tank last night and well, they love my Frill plant and the Red Ludwigia so much they didn't take the bait. I won't use chemicals unless absolutely necessary.
I have been looking at the little puffer fish that only grow to 1 inch. I can't remember what they are called but they are yellow with black dots. Would these be okay in my tank? I was thinking maybe just one. I'm afraid he might hurt the teras. Any other suggestion?
