Blue Planet Snail Rid has been designed to specifically attack snails in freshwater aquariums. Snails will eat plants which cause problems for the enthusiast; however in large amounts snails create havoc to water quality. In some instances snails can degrade the entire eco-system of the aquarium. Snail Rid will kill all snail types; ensure no wanted snails are in the water. Snail Rid is toxic to fish in soft water conditions, it is not recommended as a product to use in these conditions, test and adjust water prior to using the product.
Many species of freshwater snails are commonly introduced into aquariums with plant life and can rapidly build up in numbers. Rinsing all new plants in running water before adding to the aquarium is recommended to prevent re-infestation. Also sitting plants in a diluted solution of snail rid overnight will ensure eggs and small snails are not introduced.
