OMG, yuck, SNAILS!!!

EWWWWWWW!!! About 6 months ago, I asked the lfs for a few snails for my loaches. I tossed a couple into my 10 gallon quarantine tank with a molly and her six babies, and they sort of maintained status quo... up until a couple of weeks ago when there was a snail EXPLOSION!!!! There are literally hundreds of them in there!!I spent quite abit of time fishing out as many as I could, squishing them, and dropping them in the loach tank. It seems that whenever I leave the light off in the 10,the population just multiplies by what looks like hundreds. I'll either get something to eradicate them, or net one of my porcine yoyos to do the job. YUK!!
