>_< New Tank, New stuff, AND SNAILS
Ok, so, we have been doing cycling/fishless cycling of our tank to get it ready for fishies. AND IT HAS SNAILS. ALREADY. ITS ONLY BEEN 11 DAYS!
I do NOT want to have a snail filled tank, so what can I do to stop this before it starts. we have a blue rock, some driftwood, 5 live plants, and some sand, all from the same store. Is there a way to kill the snails without destroying the tank, or should we dump everything and start over or what? I really don't want to have to deal with a snail infestation once i already have fish, unless there's some kind of fish that will eat these tiny monsters.
Additionally, If the tank has snails, will they get into the filter too? do I have to throw out all of the filter media if i start over, or would be ok?
