I'm growing java moss in my fish tank. The tank is infested with snails. How can I sterilize the moss before putting it in my Leuc cage and not put any snails in there?
LMAO!! Joe, too much info about your weekends. I have actually tried this in my vent tank (made the mistake of not bleach/rinsing off 1 orchid I bought from a nursery. :?hicksonj said:Snails love beer. If you have them in your garden, you can cut the top off a can of beer and just place it on the ground or in a bush and you will collect a bunch of them. They climb in and can't get out (kinda like my friday nights ). I wonder if we could do something like this, while keeping our frogs from binge drinking.
Come to think of it, in one of my tanks, I had snails in it, so I put a day gecko instead of frogs in there. A few times a week I give my day geckos some fruit mush, which consists of overripe fruit(s) or fruit babyfood, honey, calcium and vitamins. In mentioned tank, I noticed in the little cup that I put the mush in, that the snails would collect in there. It took a while, but I don't see any snails anymore.snmreptiles said:Has anyone ever heard of using honey? I had someone tell me to put a shallow dish with just a thin layer on honey in the tank over night and that in the morning you would be amazed at how many snails were in the dish! He said that he thought he had a few snails in a tank and after doing that he had over 100 snails in the dish. My only concern is that the frogs would get into the honey. So I haven't tried this yet. Any input on this method??
