Hello All -

I have a 90 gallon community tank, but I have a TON of small snails that I want to eradicate (see attached pictures).

I have been scooping them out and have some assassin snail, but the reproduce so fast I can't keep up. Does anyone have other I ideas that I can try?

Thank you in advance.

Get a few more assassins
Or try feeding less, reproduction will slow but not stop.

Snails will only reproduce to the level that they have the food to maintain their reproduction. Cut down on the food and get yourself a couple loaches. They love snails. I would have gladly taken all you have until you put assassin snails in with them.
