Default Re: Getting rid of snails and all

Hi Johnny,

Thanks for the tips. Frankly i explored every option and tried out all the conservative methods. They all help reduce the snail population at least momentarily, but nothing is effective at completely eradicating them. Even 1 residual snail/egg can lead to a population explosion of snails. I manually pick them out now whenever i see one. There will be weeks that i thought wow finally all gone, until i get a rude shock the next day, with generation z snails creating bedlam.

I eventually got my vet friend who is an aquaculture specialist to come help with suggestions. Alas, i think all our options have already been exhausted. Actually the snails don't really bother me that much now. I guess i have resigned to having them around.. permanently..

Cheers
