Assassin snails work

My 75 gallon was over run with MTS snails. At times there were hundreds upon hundreds of them everywhere. 6 months ago I added 6 assassin snails. Now I have empty mts shells everywhere. I only see a few mts here and there maybe 10-20 at a time. Anyone looking to keep their snail populations in check I highly recommend assassin snails.

+1 on that. I've got some in each of my tanks and think I always will. It's a lot easier that having to dip all my new plants as it seems like I'm always swapping them out for something new or different.

The wheel turns.

Gheeez. I wish you guys would've shipped the buggers to me. I can't even keep pond snails alive. I have maybe a dozen bladder snails in a 10G guppy tank and that's after almost two full months. It's the cleanest and most maintenance-free of the 24 tank I have.
