i thought i might want to keep them... until i noticed what they have been doing to my sunset hygro! so i'd like to get rid of them. what fish do you guys recommend to get rid of them? i wouldn't mind having a bottom dwelling fishy, specially since the others will mostly stick to the top; but i'm having a hard time finding any that will fit in my tank without giving up half, if not all of my stocking scheme. i'd have enough room for one dwarf loach, but i've read they need to be kept in groups of atleast five. with five fish at 2.5 inches my tank would be overstocked without any other fish. does anyone know if they can be kept alone? would they stress themselves or would they just become recluse?
could i possibly poison the snails? i only have one guppy in there that i added today, and he could be moved. i don't want to really use 'snail poison', but maybe i could add bleach or add way too many ferts and then dilute it with a massive water change after they were dead? i read that when bleach is diluted it can be removed with dechlorinater right? or would they just clam up and survive? or worse would i be unable to make the tank safe again?
...maybe snail poison would be better, but i don't know where i could find any locally.
