You can also use a snail-shrimp-fish biscuit... put it in the tank, and a few hours later, pull out a whole ball-o-snails.

I bought some from Rain, and have made some of my own too. Of course, if you don't want to try to make your own or buy some, they are also atracted to spinach.

First thing: don't overfeed the tank. Snails thrive when you overfeed.

If you really have a big snail problem just put a piece of zucchini in the tank and the next morning remove all of the snails that have gravitated to it.

Remember though that snails are not a bad thing. They will eat leftovers and thoroughly clean the tank. I am a big fan of snails. I used to not like them, but now I appreciate what they really do.

Do not use any chemicals in your tank to get rid of the snails. Completely unnecessary and definitely unhealthy for all of your inhabitants.
