I seem to have a problem with snails. They are the cone shaped snails, and are only 2-5 mm long. I have been told by my lfs that they are in the water that we drink, as eggs, and the aquarium provides the best environment for them.My problem is that I can't get rid of them. I have been through 2 500ml bottles of snail rid, I have 3 clown loaches working over time, and I am at my wits end. Any advice would be appreciated. Evil or Very Mad
In a past life, I was a colisa lalia.

spontaneous generation? eggs in tap water? LOL no way. They hitch hike in on plants and are hard to get rid of but thats all.

If they are driving you nuts poison isn't a solution. Put in lettuce or zuchini ad pull it out when its coverered in snails or quit worrying about the snails if they are clogging filters of becoming so numerous to stop you enjoyig the rest of the tank.
