They CAN but normally will ignore larger snails. I have a dozen assassins with five nerites and have never had any problem. from watching them they tend to eat snails of the same size or smaller.

I actually got mine in the swap and shop. But I was at tropical isle in Framingham today and they had some, so I picked a couple for my 10g.
