The usual cause of snail overpopulation is too much food. Do any of these apply to your tank?

Overfeeding the fish. Uneaten fish food feeds the snails.
Algae. Snails will eat some types of algae. If your tank has a lot, this could be feeding the snails.
Organic matter; ie fish poop. Many snails will eat this if there is a lot on the bottom of the tank.

Zucchini. After you catch the snail you have to scoop Out the few That did not feed on the zucchini and change the amount of food that you put in your tank.

just put the boiled zucchini in the tank with some fish tropical and gold fish live it. Leave it in over night and scoop it out with the snails attached to the zucchini. Be careful how you lift the zucchini out of the tank or they will fall off and get free.

Zucchini. After you catch the snails you have to scoop Out the few That did not feed on the zucchini and change the amount of food that you put in your tank after that.

just put the boiled zucchini in the tank. tropical and gold fish lI’ve it. They will probably eat most of it but two thick slices will be enough to get the snails to glum on to the sides of the zucchini. Leave it in over night and scoop it out with the snails attached to the zucchini. Be careful how you lift the zucchini out of the tank or they will fall off and get free.

another thing to pay attention to is the seeds. Try not to cook squash with big seeds…some have some big seeds.
