I like a few snails, but my tanks are getting too many. What do you suggest to eliminate some of the snails in a natural way? I have 55 and 75 gallon tanks.

Add a lettuce leaf (like romaine) each night. Each morning remove the leaf with dozens of snails. Continue until snails are gone.

Meanwhile, clean your tank thoroughly including a deep vacuum of the substrate and filter cleaning. Remove all visible snails from filters. Cut your feeding by 1/3. Snails reproduce only when there is excess food. If you remove it and don't add any more the snail population will not increase.
