Black pest snails?

Hello!

I have some small black snails that have come with plants. They are pretty fast runners and they are increasing in number.

Is these snails bad for my plants? Should i get rid of them?

I think they are to many to pick out with hand, maybe a couple of Dwarf Puffers is the way to go, but i am not shure if Dwarf Puffers will hurt other fishes.

Any comment

Re: Black pest snails?

If you're afraid of harming other fish, assassin snails are the way to go.

+1 assassin snail should do the trick. Puffers will nip at your other fish depending on its personally

Sounds like pond/bladder snails. They wont hurt your plants and good for your tank. No to getting Dwarf Puffers for this! If you don't want snails in your tank, get an assassin snail.
