 Hello,
 
 My  60  gallon  densely  planted  Aquarium  is  flooded  with  Assassin  Snails.  Clown  Loach  doesnt  help.  Snail  Trap  doesn't  work  (The  snails  just  didnt  enter  the  trap  in  8  days.)  
 My  tank  has  15  Guppies,  6  Swordtails,  10  Neon  Tetra  and  4  Clown  Loach.  Any  other  solution  to  remove  the  snails?  
 
 TIA

 wow,  I'd  like  to  pick  up  a  few  if  you're  giving  away..
 Try  putting  a  pond  snail,  the  assassins  will  all  attack  the  pond  snail  and  maybe  you  can  pick  them  in  batches?

 I   sprayed  Hydrogen  peroxide  to  kill  algae  and  it  killed  all  snails  as  well.  It  do  not  affect  fish.
 
 Buy  a  bottle  of  hydrogen  peroxide  (it  is  inexpensive)  from  medical  shop,  buy  a  spry  bottle  and  fill  hydrogen  peroxide.   Reduce  aquarium  water  level  1/3  rd  and  spry  hydrogen  peroxide  on  plants  and  snails,  wait  for  10  minutes  then  you  can  fill  up  the  aquarium.  Repeat  the  process  once  again  after  a  week.
 
 When  adding  new  plants  to  aquarium  spry  them  with  hydrogen  peroxide  it  will  avoid  algae  and  snails  coming  into  your  tank.

 Would  recommend  that  you  don't  ,  I  procured  hydrogen  peroxide  from  the  local  chemist  and  it  killed  over  10  (penguin  tetras/kuhli  loach/guppies/betta)  of  my  fishes.  Great  it  worked  for  you  but  different  brands  may  have  different  compositions.  Try  finding  a  more  natural  way  to  remove  algae  /  snails.  The  learning  for  me  is  less  chemicals  in  the  tank  means  less  chances  of  anything  going  wrong.

 i  don't  think  there  is  a  "one  size  fits  all"  remedy  for  algae.  What  i  would  do  when  i  get  algae  is  the  following-
 
 a)  Get  algae  eaters  (ottos,  SAE,  snails  etc.)
 b)  regular  water  changes,  water  mix  of  50:50  (RO/Distilled  and  tap  water)
 c)  Build  an  algae  scrubber
 d)  remove  leaves  affected  by  algae  or  brush  algae  off  leaves  prior  to  water  change
 
 I  may  action  on  all  or  some  depending  on  the  outcome.  Some  level  of  algae  is  more  or  less  there  in  every  tank.

 This  is  your  one  time  experience  possibly  hyderogen  peroxide  used  was  contaminated.   
 
 Lots  people  around  the  world  use  hyderogen  peroxide  to  control  algae,  i  have  been  using  it  for  few  years  now.   What  i  do  is  spray  it  on  aquarium  glass  inside  and  plants  during  water  change,  fish  in  my  aquarium  are  many  types  of  Tetras,  it  has  not  affected  them  at  all.   My  planted  aquarium  do  not  have  too  much  algae,  if  too  much  algae  comes,  then  best  natural  way  to  fix  it  is  do  "black  out"  for  5-6  days.  
 
 All  Snails  getting  wiped  out  after  spraying  hydrogen  peroxide  is  something  i  observed,  thought  might  be  useful  to  someone  trying  to  eliminate  snails.

 I  would  gladly  take  some  of  the  assassin  snails  off  your  hands.  Where  are  you  located?
