we had them... Started off with one... Thought nothing of it... Within a few weeks there was hundreds!! We got a new tank and had to empty the old one and ive got it now (Muahaa)

theyre not dangerous.. i think they even have some beneficial behaviours for the fish..
if you really dont want them, you could find a natural predator and introduce it.. i googled it - an assasin snail would do the trick

Take them out/

if your tank is big enough get a couple of clown loaches

Currently I´m using a small net to sift the sand.

You would not believe how many I´ve got so far.

Thanks for the advice, I really don´t want to use chemicals

Best thing to do is place a lettuce leaf in your tank before you goto bed.

In the morning it will be covered in snails, just remove & bin.

Repeat for several nights.

Other alternatives are assassin snails (they eat the other snails through thier shells), or clown loaches.

Depends on the size of your tank though, as you need to keep the clowns in groups (min of 6), and they can grow to 13".

Got 6 in my 210L, but they are only a few 2-3" in size, and grow slowly :)

Good Luck

ps - stay away from the chemical snail treatments, they are not effective & can cause more harm than good !

Try a mackerel tail scented with lamprey oil.

my aunt has a 40l tank, they came back from holiday to a snail infestation and she got rid by emptying the whole tank, thoroughly washing all the gravel and pouring boiling water through all the filters etc. They lay so many eggs you either have to have a fish that can just eat them all or you have to go drastic like that to get them gone.

Yes, obviously you'd have to have the fish in a different set up till you could get everything back up in the other tank

ChrisUk, should be HUKD's font of all fish related knowledge.

I was going to suggest a freshwater pufferfish, but once he had munched his way through the snails, the OPS fish would be the next target.
