When I want to st ock a new tank with some snails I drop a slice of cucumber
or zuchini into the tank with the snails. Within 10 minutes it looks like
every snail in the tank is 'grazing' on the slice. Then I use a net to scoop
up both the zuchini and the snails. It seems like this method would work to
clean most of the snails in a tank if done enough times. Of course you would
only get the snails that like their vegetables ;-).
