Once again, I turn to you (O learned forum members) for help and advice. I'm setting up a new tank which currently has only plants in it. Well, that's not exactly true- although each plant received a 15-20 min. bath in a strong potassium permanganate solution, apparently some snail eggs made it through that, and I've been removing little brown snailies (not many, just a few) from the glass as fast as they appear. I really, really don't want any of these guys in my new tank (although I plan to get a couple of nerites as part of the "cleaning crew") and since the other inhabitants (coming from my old tank) will include some shrimp, I don't want to add loaches or puffers to the tank to eradicate them. I'm hoping for suggestions for action I can take prior to moving my existing creatures into the tank (which I was hoping to do this weekend) that will wipe them out without harming the plants or ruining the environment for my fish and shrimp. I'm considering lots of salt followed by lots of water changing, or perhaps the "Had-a-Snail" chemical option (also followed by massive water changes) but (having never tried either before) was hoping someone else had dealt with this problem in a safe and effective way that I'm unaware of. As always, thanks in advance for your kind assistance-
