a long time ago i had a puffer in my 20g, so i added a couple snails for him to eat. however i ended up returning the puffer. my 2 snails has turned into 20+ that I can count right now. They are pond snails, and i bought 3 assassin snails to help, but it is not making a significant enough of a difference. what could i add to my tank? *** heard loaches but wont they eventually be too large for a 20g? thanks.

Put a piece of lettuce in a clear plastic cup, and lay the cup on it's side on the bottom of the tank before you go to bed. When you wake up you should have a cup full of snails.

Depending what else is in the tank, you can try dwarf chain loaches. They stay quite small and do eat snails. You may have to pick out the biggest snails by hand but the will eat all small snails.
