Pest Snails

Does anyone have an overabundance of pond, ramshorn, or malaysian trumpets?

I can't seem to maintain a population in my tanks. They all get eaten and I have to outsource.

If you wrangle up a bunch when doing tank maintnence, let me know! I will gladly take them off your hands.

I'll bring MTS, and maybe ramshorn and pond next time. (my assasins did a good job in the discus tank; but no assasins in my shrimp or rabbit snail tank)

Yeah, between my loaches, gouramis, and pea puffers, no snail stands a chance. And my Dario darios like them as well if they're small enough.
