i was wondering how you kept only "some snails"? i have gone from one to 
hundreds in my 92 gallon and simply can't bring myself to kill them. i was 
considering getting a few snail eating loaches, but from what i hear they 
will eat ALL the snails and i kinda would like to keep "some snails" like 
Roger (i must also say that not only do the snails i have not eat my plants - 
i think they are pond snails - but the are the best algae eaters for certain 
kinds of algae, especially the dark green coverings on my anubias leaves. 
they just move in and wipe the leaf clean - amazing!)

how do you do it Roger?
