    I vote for the assasins, If you do get any babies they are no where near the amount of them normal problem snails. Then the baby assassins can eat the baby others. Bonus you can sell the assassins off after your done with them to help someone else. Just my 2 cents

    I had successfully got rid of hundreds of MTS from my shrimp tank with 10 assassin snails. Unfortunately, the assassins died from starvation after they rid the tank from all MTS.

    Lol. I'm reusing my old substrate in a month or so and I shall have the sieve out as I wash the clay and sand through. Won't be needing the snails this time.

    Hydrogen peroxide kills MTS snails very nicely. A couple ounces of household HP 3% per 10 gallons of water and snail holocaust ensues. Also clears up algae very well.

    Do NOT use HP in the presence of any algae eating or labyrinthine fish! Most any other fish will do just fine with HP.

    overdose of h2o2 can destroy all form of life in the aquarium so you need to be very careful with it.
