There's a few people locally with dwarf puffers who will gladly take them.

It's funny how people wouldn't think twice about killing a cockroach but can't bring themselves to kill a snail and would go out of their way to make sure they don't die while trying to get rid of them from their tanks.

Assassin snails! They will help you out by taking care of those snails AND by looking cool in your tank.

I hate roaches!
