6 Assassin snails looking for a home

I was given 6 Assassins for the Kindergarteners to check out on their invertebrates day (sometime later this week), but after that, they're free to go. Does anyone want to give them a good home?

actually found an assassin baby this morning and was stumped, amazed and so happy...

not quite sure how he/she got in there... likely as a hitchhiker.

I can home 2 if no one takes them before the next meet.

Jellie, do you want to come over to get your TTs? I'll take the assassins, however many is left (4 may be ideal, 1 for each of my tanks, and 2 for the tank that has most snails, but any number is fine). My dwarf puffers disappeared mysteriously (suddenly I don't see them anymore. maybe they jumped ) and I still have a lot of snails you gave me lol. We can meet somewhere more convenient for you as well. Thanks

fine, if that's the case, maybe we can do 2 each for acitydweller, sunyang, and myself.

I hope to maybe take down my Fluval Ebi anyway if the dwarf puffers are indeed gone, and put the shrimps currently in there into one of my remaining 2 shrimp tanks along with one assassin snail for each tank.

Dwarf puffer does fine alone. In fact, I have a feeling that when I lost my bigger DP last week (came home on Friday and didn't see her), it was maybe because they were fighting that the little one spooked the big one out of the tank.

When I came home on Friday, I couldn't find one of my amano shrimps as well.

This morning I didn't see the remaining DP.

I haven't really looked behind maybe coz I'm a bit afraid of the confirmation.

It's really weird. My Fluval Ebi is haunted. My amano shrimps have never crawl out of the tank and so have my DPs and I've had them for 1-1.5 years.

I love to take any that's left. Even as a rental. I have so many pond snails that I was considering bleaching the tank. Gah these things can get so out of hand!

I'm not a doctor in real life but I play one on this forum

WHATTT????!!!?!?!?!

And yes, I want to swap the TTs Sorry, I've been so swamped, I'll PM you further. Please don't tell me that you got my snails established and now they're taking over your tanks? Oh lord. I'm literally laughing my *** off right now. Your poor DPs!!!!

So it looks like gtu, sunyang and dr.tran all need Assassins, so does two each sound good? I'll PM the three of you after the snail presentation

Really tho? No dwarf puffers in NYC to feed the snails to? That's so sad.....
