My shrimp tank has tons of ramshorn snails that I have been removing as I catch them on a piece of zucchini, because they do make good fish food I wasn't to worried before. Now I have a 5 gallon just for them and they have probably 250 plus egg sacs all over the walls of the tanks so I am thinking its time to start managing the population in the Shrimp tank they all started in. That and I am tired of them swarming all the food I throw in the for the shrimps making me throw in more so they can actually get to feed.
I was going to get assassin snails but I read they will eat shrimps while other people say they will only eat sick or dying shrimp. Anybody have any experience in their tanks? Was thinking of getting 1 and seeing how many he can take down but I doubt he will be able to slow them to much by himself. I just don't want the guy to go after baby shrimps.
Now you get my situation and what I would like to do. What do you think would be the best option to control the ramshorns from breeding or just get rid of all together from that tank.
