Dennerle Extendable Snail Catcher
These little snail catcher devices are really clever: you put it against the glass of your tank, roll it upwards over the snails, and they are deposited into a little holding tank that is hinged & can be dumped out.
My main problem with it is how cheaply it is made. One drop to the ground could break it. Considering how expensive it is, you’d expect it to not feel disposable.
Other things to note: the head of the wand (that catches the snails) isn’t flexible at all. This means it isn’t effective at an angle (like trying to get snails off of a side of the tank you can’t stand directly over. If it was a little flexible, it would be much more useful! Also, keep in mind that this will not remove snails from plants or substrate or anything that isn’t perfectly flat.
All of that being said, I like using this. It’s telescoping handle means that for most of my tanks, I don’t have to get my hands wet to use it. I see a snail on the front glass, I quickly grab it and I’m done.
Fingers crossed that they take a really great idea and make the product equally great!
