    yea so far my best to rid snails has been cucuber, I put in a pc at night, then when I get up , I grab the whole thing snails & all and toss it . it works good if you put it in a small comtainer too, that way you dont loose the snails that jump off, just use a plant weight and tie to veggie with string, I went and bought rid -a -snail ~~ WHAT A MESS!!!! it killed my loach, 4 fish , and ALL the snails cam e back double !!!!! so that does NOT work . the veggie slice woeks great just have to stay on top of it for a long time to rid alot . zuchini works great too, I cut it kinda thick so they will stay on it till I get back .....hehe ~~~~

    They aren't hurting anything but some idiots find a way to blame the snails anyway.

    They are hurting me. My cherry shrimp tank was taken over by them. Ever since I started removing them, I've been able to cut my water changes in half. Its amazing how much waste they produce. My back feels a lot better since i do half as many water changes now.

    What about salt? I was manually removing them and putting them into a salt/water mix. Maybe it's not as nice and simply crushing them but it appeared to work for all those pesky pond snails that snagged a ride on some of my water sprites.

    Trim so that there is a snug fit when you turn the top upside down and shove it into the bottle.

    Stick bait inside like a veggie or a delicious pellet, add some gravel or a plant weight to weigh down the trap, and place it in the tank on its side. Wait overnight and it should become Hotel Snailifornia - snails check in but they don't check out
    We do this with 2 liter bottles to catch minnows for fishing. works good for that.
