Just wondering if someone can help me with a snail problem. The snails are very small about the size of a nail head. I have Clown Loaches but they don't seem to want to eat them so I have no idea what to do about them. I have shrimp in the tank so I can't use any snail kill stuff. Just wondering how to handle them.

Snails.... I got a bunch. I have Pond snails (tadpole) and small ramshorns as well as large ramshorns. All of the above I am breeding.

I have a single assassin snail, two apple snails and a zebra nerite. These are my true pets.

Assassin is to eat snails, apples and nerites are to clean algae (or help control it)

I also have lots of Trumpet snails I keep to sift around the substrate.

Other than the tiny ramshorns, I'd rather get rid of those, which is why I have an assassin.

They are both a pain and a boon.
