You can throw a piece of zucchini in at night then when you wake up the next morning it should be covered in snails, remove the snails from it and do it again.

I agree clown loaches are a bad idea in less your really want them and have a huge tank.

The problem with squishing them is they pollute the water.

There are assassin snails that eat other snails, they only produce 1 young a month not big and they will get rid of them.

I love snails but it appears you have pond snails I'm not a fan of them I myself would try to naturally get rid of them.

I also just got a new plant order and I think I may have introduced pond snails I'm not very happy about the idea.

I agree with what has been said by patadams66 and amazon21. If you feed once a day and don't overfeed and keep your water good the snail population will keep in check. You can also always offer them here on the foum, there are a number of members that have puffers who would probably be happy to take some snails off your hands
