Gee. You sure you want snails? Once in, very hard to out and snails may carry bacteria.

My puffer fish cleared almost everything but when I removed the puffers, the snails are back again. So I have to throw in the puffers again.

If you want the snails, I can start collecting them for you. Anyway, they multiply very fast. If you have 10 starters, you will have 100s soon.

Or you can buy a snail trap.



I use this for my planted tank.

Pros:
-No chemicals.
-Put in once every 2 weeks or so.

Cons:
-Fish/Shrimps can get trapped as well. I had this stupid cory that kept getting trapped inside. I let it out a total of 6 times. When I woke up in the morning, it was inside again. I'm thinking of modifying it...Might try after exams.
-Can't get them all. This depends on you, I want some snails around to eat the algae and whatnots. So I don't mind this.

Maybe can put in 2 ghost shrimps and tried it out . I saw them catching snails and eat in my planted tank.

Default what to feed the puffer?

I put in a small puffer to clear the snails and the snails all gone within a few days. But now the puffer is getting thinner as no more snails. What other things can feed the puffer?
