> Why do so many people want to eliminate their snails, anyway? I've always liked the way they make my tank a more complete and diverse ecosystem. Plus, they provide the very nice service of removing dead plant and fish matter and any extra food very quickly. I've got MTS, pond, and ram's horns, and none of them have ever harmed my healthy plants.

Well, they seem to like chewing holes in the water lily leaves and ruining them, the little bastards.  I don't think it's possible to actually eliminate them.  I just want to orchestrate a mass extermination of most of them...hey, they're like Congress!
