but she dose not feed the snails anything she just feeds flake to the goldfish. thhey were very small when they put them in the tank and breed like mad.
The simplest excess snail population short-term control is by feeding them. Not the contradiction it seems to be, the feeding is by use of food in such a way that the feeding snails are removed with a container, or with the leftover food. Select a fairly heavy lettuce leaf, run hot tap water over it to wilt it a bit, or just leave it on the counter to wilt an hour or so, then clip or weight it down in the tank, preferably just before lights-out. The next morning, collect the leaf and the attached snails. Drop in a plastic bag and put in the freezer for the day. That night discard the bag, leaf and dead snails. Repeat as needed for control while you are cutting back of excess food, fish population, and upgrading vacuuming, filter upkeep, and water change routines. An alternate technique would be to use an algae wafer or food pellet, sunk to the bottom of the tank in a bottle whose neck is too small for the fish, but allowing entry of the snails. Next morning, remove the bottle with contained snails, rinse them into a styrofoam or plastic disposable cup or bag, freeze, and discard as before, repeating as needed for control while taking the measures required to correct the underlying cause of the problem rather than just reducing the symptoms.
Pond Snails: More often than not, pond snails are the type of freshwater snails that end up in tanks by accident. Pond snails can make their way into tanks by being attached to live plants purchased from the store. Sometimes, they are even in the display tank water used to transport fish in the plastic bag from the store. Other times, live plants can have small pond snail eggs on them. Whether pond snails are considered to be pet or pest depends on each hobbyist.

Will small snails in my tropical tank, eat my angel fish eggs
The Assassin Snail (Clea helena) has been welcomed by fishkeepers as the single best all-around snail-killing animal in the hobby. Existing choices were limited to things like pufferfish and the larger loaches, particularly botiine loaches, but these fish are often difficult to maintain, and in the case of puffers especially, tend to be nippy towards their tankmates. The Assassin Snail is very different. It is small, completely harmless towards fish and shrimps, and generally very easy to keep. It is also very pretty, bright yellow with chocolate brown stripes.Instead of stocking your tank with fish that eat pellets or flakes, pick up a natural-born killer. You don’t need a piranha or any particularly mean fish. Your local pet store should carry several ordinary varieties of freshwater fish that are happy to make meals out of small snails and eggs. Clown loaches, friendly striped fish, fit in well with other peaceful fish and reduce snail infestations. Betta fish eat small snails or eggs, but only one male can inhabit a tank. Malawi cichlids eat snails too, but they’re also more aggressive and could bully your other fish if they don’t fit in. Before you select a snail-eater, ask your pet store for a recommendation catered to your resident fish. Keep your tank’s maximum capacity in mind when adding additional fish, to avoid overcrowding.I found your list helpful. I was wondering what you thought the best snail is for a 5 gallon tank with a 1 1/2 inch goldfish. I have lots of algae. Looking for something kinda small but cute. thanksTiny Cute and Small Snails for your tank fish
