 Dunk  a  piece  of  blanched  cucumber  into  the  tank  each  night.  1  hr  after  lights  off  the  snails  will  be  on  the  cucumber.  Remove  them.  Do  it  for  a  couple  of  weeks.
 
 Reduce  feeding  and  the  snails  will  reduce.

 Hi  all,
 I  went  through  some  literature  ststing  that  when  the  PH  is  low  the  shell  of  the  snails  disintegerate  and  finally  die.
 Is  this  true?
 Do  help  me  experts.
 Iam  into  this  snail  trouble.

 If  your  water  is  naturally  on  the  soft  side  then  snails  will  find  that  difficult  to  live  in  -  their  shells  will  slowly  dissolve  in  soft  acidic  water.  If  the  water  is  hard  then  there  is  little  hope  of  their  shells  dissolving.  Even  if  you  plan  to  make  your  water  soft  you  will  have  to  do  it  for  a  long  time  to  get  the  snail  shells  to  dissolve.
 
 In  addition  Malaysian  trumpets  must  be  the  rhinos  of  the  aquarium  snails.  Tough  hard  shells.
 
 Madan's  idea  is  great  for  trapping  snails  fast.

 Hi  Samson
 
   You  have/had  a  nice  tank  there....Sad  you  had  to  pull  it  apart.
 
 @  Kingfisher
 
      Well  I  have  seen  it  happen  in  my  tank,  of  course  I  did  not  want  the  population  of  trumpet  snails  to  go  down  a  lot....they  really  help  in  aerating  the  substrate.  
 
 Regards
   Harshal

 Nice  tank  you  have  there.  Have  you  done  all  this  with  only  DIY  CO2  (!)  ?  If  yes,  please  let  me  know  your  bubble  rate(bubbles  per  second)  and  tell  us  how  you  did  it.  I  am  using  pressurized  CO2  but  still  my  30  gal  has  not  turned  into  a  jungle..  It's  been  2  months...  how  long  does  it  take  to  become  a  jungle  ?   Very Happy

 Guess  what,  my  angels  layed  eggs  again  yesterday  evening   Smile   they  were  cleaning  the  filter  hose  (same  place  where  they  layed  eggs  last  time)  for  the  pst  3  days  and  i  placed  some  driftwood  ceramic  piece  near  that  hoping  i  can  seperate  it  from  the  tank  if  they  lay  eggs  but  they  had  decided  the  place  already  and  went  for  the  filter  hose,  i  left  the  lights  on  the  whole  night  to  save  it  from  snails  and  it  worked....  how  long  does  it  take  for  them  to  hatch,  hopefully  i  get  to  see  some  baby  angels  this  time...  here's  the  pic  of  the  second  batch....
 
 http://img386.imageshack.us/my.php?image=photo0204aj6.jpg
 
 Thanks  for  your  suggestion  Deepesh  and  Madan  sir....  i've  started  my  snail  hunting.....
 
 Thanks  Harshal  and  Neel
 
 @  Neel
 
   Yes  its  all  with  DIY  CO2,  bubble  rate  is  not  consistant  which  will  never  will  be  with  DIY,  but  its  about  2-3  bubble/sec  in  the  beggining  when  i  refill  the  bottle  and  comes  down  to  about  1-2  after  about  ten  days,  all  these  bubbles  get  collected  under  a  deo  cap  (something  like   a  CO2  bell  and  disolves  slowly.....  i  experimented  with  other  methods  available  using  small  pump,  airstone  but  was  not  effective  and  came  up  with  this  idea  of  using  a  deo  cap  to  collect  bubbles  and  let  it  disolve  completely....  heres  the  picture  to  give  u  an  idea  of  what  i'm  talking  about
 
 http://img386.imageshack.us/my.php?image=1102152334ds4.jpg
 
      It  took  about  4  months  to  get  there,  i  guess  triming  also  comes  in  picture,  i  used  to  trim  stem  plants  often  like  once  in  2  weeks  so  they  branched  out  a  lot  and  gave  this  jungle  look....  Experts  correct  me  if  i'm  wrong
