so i have rams horn snails in my 36G. at first i was trying to smash them but i have come to the conclusion that i will just let them be. i just wanted to make sure that eventually they will control their population based on the amount of nutrients i provide them and that they are not going to harm anything.

Thanks,
Nick

You can't grow and reproduce if you don't eat. If you get an explosion, that just lets you know that you need to feed less, remove plant matter, and/or up your water changes. Smiley

If you smush them,your just feeding the others.Ive noticed briggs(pomacea bridgsii) can outcompete them for food and in some cases actually eliminated the rams and pond snails in my tanks.
