- Once again, you are mistaken. Your not having
experience with loaches is obvious. The introduction of
loaches to the tank will wipe out "ALL" of the snails.
Not only has it worked for me, but it has worked for
thousands of other experienced aquarists world wide. I have
been breeding and raising tropical fish for thirty
eight years. During that time, by using loaches (both
Botia almorhae, and Botia macracanthus will work well)
to control the snail populations in my tanks has
been standard practice. Breaking down a tank because
of snails is not only overkill but totally
unnecessary. Like I stated before, no adult snails, means no
breeding and consequently no eggs leading to.....you
guessed it, no snails.
