Assassin snails

I have a pair of assassin snails that have been laying eggs like mad. This didn't bother me because they never seemed to hatch. Well, rescaping my tank yesterday I found quite a few baby ones. I don't really have any other snails (some nerites, but that's pretty much it). If anyone needs some I will make them available fairly cheap. Just PM me. I am sure they'd rather help someone clear an infestation than hang out in my tank.

I have seen the adults prey on younger snails in my tanks and actually control their own population

As you know, I have lots of food for them.

The auction is coming up in a week, bring them by and we can put them in the auction.

Tanks: 2@100, 2@75 12@55, 5@40, 2@30, 30@29, 45@20, 10@10, auto water change system, all planted, endangered and extinct in the wild fish, many C.A.R.E.S list, lots and lots of angels, discus and anything challenging. Currently have many Killifish (Blue Gularis & 6 other types). My hobby is changing water.... +koi pond, planted outdoor tanks in garden.

Will bring as many as I find by when I drop off your assassin angels.
