A clown loach dip XD. But in seriousness potassium permanganate or copper sulfate. I suggest the former as it's available as tank buddies or whatever at the pet store and a bit safer.

Just a word from the wise on the potassium permanganate. It kills snail eggs, but doesn't always get the snails themselves (especially trapdoors). I've left plants in overnight and would see the snails sliding around just fine even in higher concentrations.

the only plant safe killer of snails I'm aware of is a flu treatment.
worm your fish and kill the snails :smile:

What solution ratio would you use for the potassium permanganate?
Make a nice dark solution of purple/pink and you should be fine. It doesn't take much to color the water so that it's still translucent but has a dark color, then just let the plants sit in it for a while.
