Default Almost finished my HEX tank and have one Q

Hi,

Ugh.... your tank is beautiful . *jealous*

I can't identify the snails for you... Sorry! Here's a link with a bunch of photos for reference. Maybe your snails are in there somewhere .

Great looking tank!! I can’t identify the snail you found, but I know when I found a snail in my tank they multiplied like crazy.. :/ and were a pain to get rid of.

I think maybe you can use dry ice to kill them? before you add the frogs..if not, there might be another method..in my opinion I would try to get rid of the snails before I had the frogs.

Beautiful tank!!!! I'm no help on what species of snail that is, but like LittleDip said, they are a pain to get rid of. I found some in moss that I harvested locally and I just about couldn't get rid of them.

Snails are a pain in the butt. Those snails come in with aquatic plants all the time. They're usually OK in fullsize aquariums but I don't know how they'd act in such a small water feature. My recommendation is to get rid of them: easier now than later. Is that rockwall in the middle a waterfall? Got any closer pics?
