The best way to control them is not to overfeed. If you want to get rid of them, remove them as you see them or put a large piece of food near the front of the tank and remove them as they move to the food.


Totally agree. Why does it some no one has the love for snails. LOL Is is because your trying to go for a certain look? I'm happy when I see snails. They keep the tank clean.
