My MTS don't reproduce nearly as much as my ramshorns. I think most of us that keep snails exercise some level of active population control. I toss in some boiled spinach once a week or so, wait for it to be covered in snails, and then pull the larger onces out and toss them in with my Oscar and Convict who dispose of them quite quickly.

It's not hard to keep their populations in check if you see them getting out of hand.
