Assassin Snails

Hello everyone,
I recently noticed my cycling 90G tank has some slimy pests aka pond snails. Would anyone in the Denver area have a surplus of assassin snails to sell/trade/give away? Also if you know of a LFS that has some let me know...Thanks much

From my experience, assassin snails will never do the job of a few botia striata. Best snail control i've ever seen!

Those loaches are pretty cool, but I'm stocking this tank with some SA cichlids and know that they will pester/injure any non aggressive fish...anyone know if cichlids will eat pond snails?
