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

Default Snails?

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.

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