"Snail haters, there may be a solution! I used AlgaeFix by API to control an algae bloom in a tank that was also overridden by snails. The solution is NOT safe for invertebrates, the proof - after one month of repeat dosage (following package instructions) EVERY SINGLE SNAIL IS DEAD. Gone, not even a sign they were there. I had one type of snail, will anyone else try this and see if it works for their snail problem?"
Snails are definitely invertebrates, which means all of them are sensitive to chemicals labelled as unsafe for inverts. Ask any self-respecting snail and they will verify it, right before they gasp their last breath. As long as you don't have any other invertebrates in your tank, this is a slick way of getting rid of snails. Have you every tried this ingenious method of committing snail genocide?
