Thanks for the suggestion but i think the assassin snails might get assassinated by other assassins

if your monsters are not eating the snails, the assassin snails should be safe.

Clown loach is another very effective option.

or you can try using an aquarium snail trap. google for information.

As some Bros suggested, there are some solutions that will eradicate the snails but safe for fishes

Yah, I am also having this sort of infestation in my pleco tank. Not sure how it suddenly appear. I just leave it to 'clean' my tank but it multiplies like crazy. Throw in carrot and cucumber don't seem to help as most ignore.

One possibility if your FGT is exposed to elements.

Bird's poop. The bird could've eaten the snails. Some with eggs.
