    Dear Sir,
    My 3 feet and 5 feet tanks are filled with 10 thousands of Ramshorn's snail in rocks , aquarium glass wall , plants , filters, pipes, everything.
    I have taken out everything, washed away all snails, even the aquarium is full empty and no water and fully dried for 2 days now still I found some Ramshorn's eggs on glass walls, now tell me how long they can survive without water. I mean if I again pour water in the tank will they hatch again. Then for how many days should I keep it in dried state so that they are destroyed and never hatches.
    Please reply asap as all my fishes are in plastic tub for 3 days now.
    Bcoz last time 3 months back when I had similar Ramshorn's infestation I did same thing but let only 1 day to dry but see they again came back and in these 3 months I did not introduce any new fish , snail or plants so they must have hatched from hidden eggs.
    So this time I want to make sure so plz tell how many day should I let my aquarium and filters dry , so that all snails die, I also have planned to remove all live plants from the tanks.
    So plz help with suggestions.

    I remembered "no planaria" kill snails without harming the fishes

    remove everything and soak the soil in hot water... I did that to my 1 feet tank to remove ramhorn snails.
    don't forget there might be snail eggs on your plants too..

    Actually I found that reduce feeding will really control snail population.
