Getting rid of snails!

Getting rid of snails!Getting rid of snails!Bros, really need some advice here。 My sump tank is INFESTED with snails! I have tried assassin snails but to no avail。 Can recommend any medicine to get rid of them? My tank consists of aro, rays, birchirs and severum。 Im worried about the anti-snail medicine affecting the rays。。。

assassin snail is gd。。 if unable to find。。 get puffer fish oso can
>bro i used to face the same problem as yours。 I tried big amt of assassin snail but somehow those snails still managed to reproduce at a alarming rate。 Eventually i took out all my fishes and place it all in a tub and wash the tank。 Check for those dark corner of your tank, the snail always like to lay eggs and is looks like trasparent bubbles very chewy and sticky feel。
BTW the tank i got this problem is only 2 by 1。5 ft by 1。5ft so therefore i go such extrem。 Like what bro pentel3 said, puffer is also another gd choice。 Try get puffer in huge amount

anyway heres my input , try tieing a cucumber to a weight metal and leave it around the snails area 1 or 2 days you will have all the snails accumulated at the cucumber so just remove them all bits by bits,
another way is puffer might do a good job but different water parameter will killed the poor puffer easily so best get a cheap n good clown loach they will suck the hell out of the snails leaving shells as puffer will crush the shells hence might poise irriatting shells all around。
>Thanks for the replies。 But the snails are in the sump tank where all the layers of medias are so its not quite possible to have clown loach or puffer fishes。 As much as possible, i will not want to move the fishes too, thats why my last resort is medicine。。。
>Try use fiberglass tank
>i have the same snails in sump problem。 so far i havent do anything abt it。 how about if u off return pump, then put medicine in sump for 2 hours, then drain sump water?

(IMO) Bro, U going to kill the BB that colonise in the media。。。 Your cycle got to restart again。。。
>I have the same problem, at one point there were what looked like hundreds of them on my cotton wool。 It was quite gross to see a bed of black moving around when I change it。 I used Dymax snail eliminator to reduce the numbers but they are still around,big shoulders easily clear 10 at least every WC。 I have already given up on trying to clear them all as my fish is too expensive to risk more powerful medication。 If its not that bad, I suggest to learn to live with it。
>Add some salt might help and make fish more active too
