G'day

I found an article that said Assassin Snails (Antentome Helena) are a great way to remove other snails from tanks.

Are they in Australia and if so where can they be bought from?

Thanks

Matthew

I hope not!

If I knew.....I wouldn't tell you..... :p

Best solution is a snail trap.....as suggested in the article.... ;)

ps....I'll bet there is an Australian snail somewhere out there that will do the job.....but it just hasn't been found yet!!!

I recently had a snail infestation.

Buggers got into everything.

Stripped the tank, removed filter and got a new one, threw out ornaments, used KMnO4 (condies crystals) on everything I was keeping to get rid (kill) them.

Apparently clown loaches will kill snails - depends on the type of tank you're going for though.
