Tank Invaders! help!
 
I have a 10 gal. planted tank and got new plants for it about 3 months ago.About a month after I saw a little baby pond snail in my tank.I wanted to get rid of it but people told me that it wont harm anything and that its not necessarily a bad thing so I kept him.Now in the last month theres beena population exploision and now have about 12 in my tank! I want to put an assiasin snail in there but I also have 2 nerites and was wondering if the assiasins will eat them too?

Try putting a piece of lettuce in the tank overnight when the lights are out. Hopefully, you'll have snails feasting on it and you can pick them out first thing in the morning.

They won't do any harm but they can quickly take over a tank. Be careful not to overfeed the tank in the meantime. They'll multiply like crazy if they have a good food source.

thank you I will do that, and dont worry I dont even feed my nerites I dont even know how they survive cause I dont have any alge but when I put an alge wafer in they never eat it so I just stopped and they seem to do fine.
