Hi everyone !

I need your help.

On my small aquarium (68 litres) where i decided to keep mainly tetras I have:

25 cardinal tetras
12 neon tetras
6 glowlight tetras
2 algae eating shrimps
2 otocinclus
Some plants

I have also, quite a few tiny snails that keep
growing by the day. I have been watching to see if any one would have them for dinner, but there are no takers !

Any ideias of what to do ?

I know the clown loaches love them, but they are in my other aquarium.
Is there a particular fish that I could buy to add to this small aquarium ?

I feel bad, as any living creature should be able to live....but what else can I do ? If I do nothing, what will happen ??
