  1. So I am having an issue I have now had most of my beloved rams horn snails die on me. My Nitrates are close to 0 as well as nitrites and ammonia. The only change I started doing was dose API leafzone for an added boost of potassium and iron 2 times a week 20mls each time, once on Sunday and once on Wednesday. My complete dose of my tank is 8 ml. of Easy Green and 20mls of leafzone Sunday and Wednesday. Before adding leafzone I saw the snails were thriving noticed eggsacks all over but never noticed babies really but they might be hiding in substrate who knows. My plants started getting pin holes and and my Java fern was unhappy so I started to add the leafzone to bring that to balance. Soon after though I found my large rams horns to start passing away then noticed young ones as well within the past 2 weeks and have no understanding to what is happening. They were my main fighter against brown diatoms and I noticed that with them gone the Diatoms are coming back. Any thoughts?????
  2. so I'm getting some vallisnaria form coop today. I read around and it seems like none of the conventional snail killing dip methods work with them as vallisnaria seems quite sensitive to "chemicals". This includes alum, h2o2, and bleach (other methods I've looked at aren't that good with snails). But, since I'm only really concerned about snails, which are macroscopic, I figure I can pull them and their eggs off by hand. Have people had good luck just looking closely and picking off snails and eggs? I know quarantine is another option but I'm too impatient. Also yes I've heard all the pro-snail arguments. I am still not pro-snail.
  3. My son and I maintain Aquariums and also help with the set up of new tanks in our local area just for us to have something to do together. I had a lady email me wanting to rid her tanks of snails. I tried to convince her otherwise telling her about all the benefits of keeping snails to an aquarium. Shes not having it. So my question is how do I go about completely wiping out a population of thriving snails within a 75G? I told her we could catch as many as possi let and to add some assassin snails but she didn't like the idea of adding more snails to her tanK. I've never dealt with a snail invasion and any and all advise would be greatly appreciated. Also I just put In an order at the Co-op and can't wait to get all my new goodies including my new Aquarium Co-Op hat woot woot. My Nerm-ism is threw the roof right now!!
  4. I have not added anything to my 29g hospital/quarantine tank in years. Not plants. Not fish. Not decor. Yet, magically, a couple years ago, snails started showing up. Ar first, I didn't care so much because they do add waste to keep the nitrogen cycle going. However, now I'm thinking about trying my hand at plants and that tank is as good as a tank as any to start in. What I don't want is, to cause an infestation my other tanks... assuming I do okay at the plant project and start moving them around. No hitchhikers! So, all that to ask, what's the best fish to get that will eliminate snails and their eggs? I hear loaches, but there are a great many types to chose from. Is one type better than another?
