Sera Snail Collect 5" x 2-1/2" x 1" high
Effective and useful
This is a mechanical snail trap involving no medication to your tank. It includes two pieces of food to start you off but you can also just use a piece of algae wafer in the middle. The entrance slots on the side are adjustable to prevent fish entering, or if there's specific size snails you are trying to trap.
The pieces are made out of plastic, but overall they are fairly well made, but I'm unsure how well it'll hold up in the long run.
The cost of the unit is price cheaply and affordable, and is re-usable, so I don't see a complaint there.
Overall, I recommend this to anyone who wants to rid snails from their tank.

Works for all "pests"
Bought this in an attempt to remove the huge MTS population I have, I used a omnivore pellet instead of the food they gave me and placed it in my tank. I could see the MTS coming up out of the substrate at the scent of food so I shut the lights and walked away. I came back 4 hours later to see what I caught and I did have a good number of MTS in and around it...however I had also caught one hungry Dojo Loach who had slipped in and not been able to slip back out. He seemed panicked so I released him and put it back in the tank. Next morning had the same effect and then decided the MTS capture was not worth killing my loaches.

Well thought out, works well
The design is sound and well thought out. It works well. I'm not sure it will keep up with the reproductive habits of pond snails, but it is making a dent in the population.

Product is easy to assemble and can be disassembled for easy storage. Works extremely well, the snails crawl over each other to get inside to the bait. This is the best product I have used to control snails.
