My advise, based on your wish to not harm the snail, is just to wait and see. There's a good chance that the fish in your tank may eat the tiny baby snails...thus keeping the population in check.

The only problem I had with snails when they appear in my tank were them getting into the filter. I purchased a plant and shortly thereafter I had hundreds of snails in my tank. On the glass, plants, rocks and filter. Looked pretty sweet. They helped with gravel aeration immensely. Eventually, I stopped feeding my fish for awhile and they ate the population down to a manageable level. Could use some more right now.I have my tank for 2 months, i went and got me some indian fern floating plants and after three weeks i found a slimmy freaking disgusting snail, now im thinking to giveup on the whole fish tank thing… After 1 day I cannot se any snails at all in my 2 tanks, Fishes and plants are OK. No ammonia / nitrite spikes. I plan to continue this so that new hatched snails get killedI have noticed no one has mentioned the use of ‘Assassin Snails’ as method to control these snails. I just bought my first and have some MTS on their way to add to tank. I have 10gallon tank with mixture of ottos, hillstream loach, tetras and rasboras. with mix live and plastic plants and pebbles with some good algae growth. Sand and gravel substrate. I put a cat food pellet (after checking ingedients were safe for tank) and buried it so fish could not get to eat. returned home and their it was the assassin snail snorkel sticking out from sand where i put. If get too many snails then i need to put less food in for fish and perhaps add more assasin snails to clean up!what is a loach please is it a fish i have a 150ltr tank that is overun by snails i only have guppies in my tank
is the battery a safe way to please help im pretty new at thisI was adised to put some "real" plants in to help with levels in the tank so I put in 2 plants about 2 months ago. Since then I have lost 3 fish (although I have gained some young too) but my problem is that I now seem to be infested with snails!!!I have two assassin snails in my 20L. They did a great job of bringing down the population of the snails in my tank (mystery snails I think. Tiny and dark brown or black and biggest one not much bigger than half a dime.) After two weeks of reducing feeding and introducing the assassin snails, I was finding little piles of empty shells underneath the decor. Dozens of shells per pile. I was also handpicking them out once a week to get the big ones. Can’t even tell I ever had them now. No chemicals, no massive deep clean. Just routine water changes, lowered the feeding, and the added assassin snails. I don’t mind a few snails because I know the benefits, but when there are so many that it could effect the quality of the water, the life of my fish and the live plants, the numbers have to be reduced. I can’t have sick fish and rotting plants.As with any aquarium purchase, avoid buying Mystery Snails from tanks with dead or dying snails, fish or other tank mates. Tanks with dead or dying inhabitants may indicate sickly conditions, poor water quality or contagious diseases. It’s better to avoid these issues instead of getting involved with them.
