Re: [APD] Speaking of killing things...
Smaller loaches will work. skunk, yoyo, and striated loaches eat snails
too. I get rid of my excess snails by collecting the snails and putting
them into the tank where I keep loaches. They may eliminate the snails
completely ....if you want just a few snails...........loaches may not be
the best choice.
