You ever go down to your tank in the wee hours before the lights come on and see how many snails you have? Holy crap, I have! They are all over the place. It's kind of cool.
Makes me wonder if you can somehow trap them in a min-lobbster trap or something. Like, put a few algae tablets in a small wire trap and collect a few dozen just to limit the amount.
Anyone ever try that?
BTW the Turbo Twist UV sterlizer has worked like a charm and I thank all who helped me out there. A little over a week since I installed it and the tank is crystal clear.
