i have a hard time trying to get rid of snails. but you can get those big ones they have at some stores. just get 1 if you dont want them to breed.

Clown Loach eats snails

I had mystery snails for a while, I had 3 and they never reproduced. Then I added crayfish and the crayfish liked escargot.

I think apple snails get big and aren't hermaphrodites

loads of fish eat snails, they will not make much differance to your algea, only get them if you want snails, not to clean your tank as they wont clean the tank
