I have 6 platys (5 girls and 1 male) and I just noticed these tiny snails are like everywhere. Its not horrible bad yet but I did some research and it says they can overpopulate a tank real fast. Now I don't want anything that will harm my platys. I adore them so much. I was told by a friend an assassin snail would work and also certain loaches. I am unsure of what to do. But I have no problem going out tomorrow and picking up a snail OR a loach. I know some loaches get big so i would need help from someone. Someone to tell me which loaches would be safe to get. Also they would be in with platys. I dont worry about my platys attacking anything because they are so peaceful (well Calypso chases the other girls but thats another story lol). So which should I get? Which would be safer for my platys? Or does it not matter?
