Welcome to the site AainaalyaA. Hope you can learn something from it!

On a side note: How do you say your name? I have trouble spelling it, and still dont' have a clue how to pronounce. What does it mean/where did it come from?

- ignore them... most of them eat algae, some are beneficial in digging around in the substrate, adding some micro flow (tm) to it, some are scavenging (eat dead bodies or leftover fish food)

- poison them... there are "medications" that you can buy to get rid of them, like other invertebraes they are more sensitive for example to copper than fish and plants.

- make them part of the food chain... there are snail-eating fishies that will take care of that problem in no time, like those minute puffers or various loaches (Botia spp)
