I removed all my fish to another existing tank. I took a gamble and dumped in 25mls of snail rid into a highly infested tank. Pretty much instant death. Had no ill effect on my plants. That was two months ago and I have no snails. Washed plants and equipment before putting back. Cleaned substrate, an after a week, I put back my neons for a week and reintroduced the remaining fish. All is good in the tank.
Im doing something wrong, overdosing but nothing no snails appear to be dieing... Does co2 interfere with the chemical...?
this stuff can kill your fish if you overdose them, I have 1100 letters so I should have put it in two bottles but I just put in one and watched the fish carefully, and to my amazement, all the snails fall off the glass and plant within two hours advice read the instruction carefully
Worked pretty well, had to do a couple of doses spreadnout over a few weeks to get the stragglers, but overall it was effective.
Small snails in the tank are a pain in the gravel! However, the warnings about soft water use really put me off using the product. Implications are that it could kill all the fish in the tank if the water in your area is very soft. I ended up using a very, very low dose and will repeat after about 3 weeks if the snail population rises up again. If you have hard water in your area this would be easy to use. Amazing how many dead snails lie in the gravel afterwards on doing a routine gravel suction clean.
