Hydrogen Peroxide as snail egg killer?

20053 Views 13 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Rusalka
Hey all,

I'm thinking of transporting several of my plants into my new tank but don't want to take along the evil ramshorn snails that are chowing down on several of my plants. I'm thinking of doing a hydrogen peroxide dip before putting them in the new tank - i've read this kills snails and algae and may do the trick.

Does anyone have any experience with this technique? Any ideas how long I'd have to soak the plants before transplanting them?

Thanks all!

ramshorns can be collected by hand or baited easily.
I don't consider them a pest, because they are easy to control.
