Thanks a lot for the responses guys, I really appreciate it.
I actually have some shrimps in there along with some snails.. So I can't do copper.. I think I might as well do a substrate change, and at the same time take them along with it for a new substrate in order to attempt to reduce their numbers by a lot.. Might cause a mini-cycle.. ugh. I will have to put the tank inhabitants in a different tank.. The broken down aquasoil is such a mess, honestly.. I regret getting it although it did help my plants in the past..
