I guess a guarantee isn't a guarantee.

I bought another live plant for the kids fish tank. It was guaranteed snail free....

Guess what we found!!! Two baby snails (at least that we've seen so far). We already have 2 snails, so I don't want anymore. Looks like my bestie is getting some snails for her tanks, LOL.

I always soak new plants in bleach solution and then rinse them in water with dechlorinator before adding them to my tanks.

There are chemicals you can buy for the tank to kill the snails. They don't need another snail to make baby snails and one can quickly turn into 500.

Right now it's just the 2 babies that I've found, that I'm OK with since I can give them to a friend. Any more than that and I'll have to kill them. I didn't put the tank water all the way to the top in case the 2 snails that we DO want have babys, I can just get rid of the egg sack before they hatch.

STG, escargot just makes me cringe, lol. Hubby loves it, but blah YUCK!!! If it didn't moo, cluck, oink, or gobble this chicky WON'T eat it!!!

Not true for all kinds of aquatic snails. They may be the kinds that lay the eggs in small clumps in the plants. Be sure to look for goo golbs on the plants and glass, when they're mature and close to hatching the goo gets white spots (the immature snails)

The 2 that we DO want are apple snails, the ones that lay eggs above the water. I forgot the latin name, diff*** something. But we're good there. But I still have been keeping an eye on the plants
