Snail Rid Products
When you buy an aquarium snail treatment be aware of how it may effect the rest of your aquarium. As well as fixing your snail problem it can cripple the biological aquarium processes and harm other aquatic inhabitants.
Most snail treatments are copper based preparations that poison all snails in the aquarium. All other mollusks in the fish tank will also be killed by these products. Animals such as freshwater mussels should be removed from the fish tank and scrubbed to remove any snail eggs or baby snails.
Stick to the dosage directions carefully. Do not add extra chemical just to be certain. Many fish can be killed by less than twice the lethal dose for snails
Copper dissipates quickly in the aquarium. In a few days most of the copper compound will have changed into an inert sediment that can be removed next time the substrate is vacuumed.
The copper sulphate used in these liquid snail treatments are relatively safe for humans. In fact copper sulphate is used on and approved for organic food production. Even so, avid contact with the skin and wash your hands after use.
Recently chemical free solutions have become available. While not as effective as the copper snail poisons they have no detrimental impact of the fish or filtration.
