Post What Kind Of Snails Are These?

I found these snails in my tank after i planted some new plants. I don't know what kind of snails these are, and I want to know before I get rid of them all. I have a shrimp only tank, and I hear snails can be beneficial for the shrimps. Can someone help me please?

Looks like a bladder snail. Harmless, but can be unsightly if they breed out of proportion. (usually due to over-feeding - but not always)

What's a good way to get rid of them? I've heard fenbendozal is good.

Snail traps using food as bait or just manual removal.

Fenbendazol wont necessary kill them, will kill fancy snails though... and make a tank inhabitable to fancy snails for a minimum of 6-8 months... and potentially harmful to shrimp.


Or you could do nothing, don't overfeed, and likely population will remain small.
