nuisance snails


New member
I started my reef about 8 months ago and i had put 4 or 5 little black snails that were at the LFS. i now have over 100 of them. I like that they keep my tank clean and help to eat the extra food and such, but theres too many of them. anyone have any ideas what they are and how to control or remove them?

could they be nerites? they reproduce pretty easily, although that seems REALLY fast. how big are they?

I have a bunch in my tank too.. and I just started to see tiny ones.

They will self control based on food.
