    Is there any way of getting rid of snails without doing in the shrimp? I would imagine loaches, etc., would get the shrimp as well as the snails. Have a small 10 gallon, with a large piece of moss where the snails, and shrimp probably breed. Will anything clean the moss of snails, but not the shrimp?

    Clean any small glass/plastic jar etc with a lid and poke some holes a bit large than the snails, add some fish food.
    Place in the tank at night, wait, pull out the snails later.

    Now stop over feeding the tank, get some bottom feeding catfish, more shrimps etc.

    You will only have a snail issue if you add too much left over food.
    They are algae eaters, so think about them as easy to care for shrimp.

    They eat the left over food and the population explodes.
