Tiny snail infestation... how to get rid of them?
Reviving an old thread... Until last night I've been squishing the snails by hand every couple of days. However I thought I'd give the old lettuce leaf in the jar ago and... it hasn't worked I woke up this morning and only a couple of my shrimp and 1 snail were eating the lettuce (I'd blanched it and everything). So should I try another vegetable or do I have to go back to squishing??

The #1, 100% sure-fire way to rid yourself of snails is to break down the tank, soak everything in a diluted bleach solution (1 part bleach to 20 parts water) for 10 minutes and then rinse it all until it no longer smells of bleach and put everything back. Your plants you will want to only dip for 3-5 minutes, though, as not to fry them.
