  Snail killer!!

When we had our fishtank, the snails popped out babies constantly. At one point, I think we counted 50 baby snails.

  Actually, I've only killed that one snail (the one on the banana plant).

The others are still sliming away happily in the fishbowl. Except the mystery egg sack seems to have dried up and died on its own (I assume it was full of baby snails). Not sure why.

The snails are pretty cool, but man, they're so dirty.

  _if_ you don't want snails, and you're tired of removing them by hand: get clown loaches, they'll gobble up all the snails.

They're my favorite aquarium fish. Not just because of the sweet 'staches.

If you get them, may I suggest the following names:

  I considered it, but my research showed them to be too big for my itty-bitty tank. The smallest tank they're recommended for is 20 gallons, and mine is only a measly 10 gallons.
