  1. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have 6 assassin snails in my 10gal, they’ve been there for a week now and I feel like I see no difference in the invasive snail numbers. In fact, it feels like the invasive snail population is growing lol. They’re like fleas, I see so many of them all over the bottom of the aquarium and on the...
  2. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Bought three assassin snails to take care of some pest snails. It was only a matter of time till they thrive and multiply. To me it just looks unsightly and I would love to get rid of them. How big do they have to be for me to be able to get store credit? Also, how long will it take? Edit...

  4. Fish
    So I am currently fighting some brown algae which is no big deal with some good scrubbing. I also noticed I have a pond snail in there that was a hitchhiker on a plant. Again no big deal as he eats the brown algae. Now the problem is I am having to continuously scrape snail eggs off plants and...

  7. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Is there any particular reason that I can't seem to keep assassins alive in my high CO2 environment? I've got a 30 gallon with pressurized CO2 with drop checker lime green. I have gotten several of them but they seem to turn up dead after a couple weeks to a month or two. This last group of 6...

    Hey, I plan on setting up a tank with some Limnopilos naiyanetri aka Thai Micro Crabs. I know they are pretty shy and friendly, but do you think they would be in danger with assassin snails? Thanks Doug
  10. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have been observing my assassin snails and have learned a few new things about them. 1. There is a way to tell the sexes apart. Females are slightly rounder and larger than the males. By round I mean, right where the snail comes out of its shell, that part of the shell is rounded. Also, the...
