Starts today.

A friend of mine gave me a few Malaysian trumpet snails a few months ago for one of my fish tanks. It has very fine gravel and they help keep it aerated. What he did not tell me was they breed none stop and I have had a massive boom and there are at Least 100 of the little bleeders now but they tend to hide in the gravel during the day. So I am cutting down on food, put some courgette in to catch some, scooping out what I can every day and finally tonight I added four assassin snails who will eat other snails. I just have to clear the empty shells.

I could add some treatment to kill them but I don't like to add chemicals to my tanks, plus I dont know what affect a load of dead snails will do to the tank so prefer to try and do it the natural way. I may be at it for some time! lol!
