Hmmm... where do you get those? I've been pulling snails out by hand and don't seem to be making a dent. I've also tried having some loaches but for some reason I can't seem to get them to stay alive

Once the assasin snails do their job what do you do with them? Do they harm the fish?

Yeah, how do those assassin snails work? How do they kill? Don't they breed just as fast as well?

from what I have read, they dont reproduce like jack rabbits.


They are more powerful then the trap door, suction thing I think and they just suck the slug out and consume it.

I will be getting some if my kuhlis ever slack off the MTS buffet they seem to think I provide for them out of the kindness of me heart.

they will eat meaty food once they eat all the snails. they are slow breeders its not like you will have 1000 of them over night like other snails. really a cool snail to have to keep the others under control.
