Question or Problem:
My 10 gallon is doing great with lots of live plants! HOWEVER! I have a parasite snail problem! when I bought some new plants a month ago I had hitchhiker snails on them I did not know about, ugh! I just used some had a snail for a few days, followed instructions 1 drop per gallon / so 10 drops in my 10 gallon. I took my mystery snail out and put him in a mason jar with daily fresh water and some potatoe and veggie flakes. I use the aqua clear canister style filter. I use purigan bags (synthetic media / no carbon due to my plants so it does not strip the fertilizer I add to the tank). Now I am going to do a 50 percent water change and I dropped a carbon filter bag in just to make sure the copper sulfate from the had a snail will be out of the water for my mystery snail.
Is the Had a snail even going to work?
Any other suggestions of getting rid of pest snails?
Am I doing everything write for my re-introduction of the mystery snail?
I have also heard that the cory cat is sensitive to the copper sulfate... is this true?
