I am scared of bleach... Had a bad experience but I have heard it works well for others. I have heard of people using alum. I haven't tried that. When I had a snail problem in one of my tanks. I broke it down and washed all the plants, boiled whatever I could and replaced what I couldn't. I bought 6 large assassin sails and put a brown knife in for about 2 months. Haven't had a problem since. That's been at least a year ago.
