 Hi  All,
 
 I  am  having  problems  with  small  snails  in  my  planted  tank.  They  are  eating  the  leaves,  multiplying  very  fast  and  look  quite  ugly.  Is  there  a  way  to  take  care  of  this?

 Hi  Shankar,
 
 If  you  have  problems  with  ramshorn  snails,  then  get  4  to  6  clown  loaches.  They  will  finish  off  all  snails  within  few  days.  Clown  loaches  seems  to  avoid  trumpet  borrowing  snails.

 Hi  Shankar,
 
 first  please  let  us  know  if  the  snail  that  you  have  got  is  the  ramshorn  snail  or  the  malayan  borrowing  snail.  If  in  case  you  have  the  malayan  borrowing  snail  that  looks  like  a  cone,  you  wont  hav  any  visible  diff  even  if  you  add  clown  loaches.  This  will  be  effective  only  with  the  ramshorn  snails.  If  you  want  to  have  control  of  the  malayn  snail,  the  only  option  is  to  remove  all  your  fishes  and  add  one  or  two  fresh  waters  puffers.  
 
 Regards
 
 Venket

 Hi  Venket,
 
 I  am  sure  it  is  not  a  Malayan  snail.  It  looks  like  a  ramshorn  snail  but  these  are  very  small;  may  be  about  2  or  3mm.  Are  they  all  the  same?

 Are  you  sure  it  is  the  snails  eating  the  leaves  ?.  Have  you  seen  them  do  that.....,  or  is  that  a  potassium  deficiency  you  are  seeing?.
 Do  you  suspect  the  snails  because  of  holes  in  the  leaves,  brown  patches  on  the  leaves?  Are  older  leaves  turning  yellow  quickly?

 Well,  I  am    not  very  sure.    I  see    holes  on  the  leaves  and  for  that  matter  on  fresh  new  ones  and  they  are  not  turning  yellow.    So  I  suspected  the    snails  for  this.    Confused

 You  may  have  potassium  deficiency.  How  much  KNO3  are  you  adding  to  your  aquarium?
 
 Which  plants  show  these  symptoms?  What  are  your  tank  dimensions?
 
 Do  these  holes  on  the  new  leaves  have  a  larger  surrounding  patch  of  brown  coloration?

 No,  Madan,  I  have  not  added  any  fertilizers  yet.

 Almost  all  the  green  plants  have  this.  My  tank  is  48  X  18  X  18(inches)

 Not  exactly,  but  it  is  more  like  they  are  slowly  decaying  at  the  edges  of  these  holes.

 Start  adding  one  teaspoon  of  KNO3  at  weekly  water  changes.  You  have  both  K  and  N  deficiency.  Do  this  for  a  month  and  see  if  the  rpoblem  vanishes.
