I recently bought 10 assassins for my 55 gallon and there was PLENTY of snails to be food but now 2 weeks later there are just a bunch of assassin snail shells... do they eat each other? parameters are fine... do silver dollars eat them? any ideas?

I've never kept them, but a quick Google search found this thread:

According to that thread, you can supplement their diet with raw fish.

Maybe they weren't acclimated properly or something? As Ted said, they will eat normal fish food as well as other snails, so starvation shouldn't be much of a problem.

Mine eat all snails except bigger rams horns I keep MTS to supplement there food. I breed cories and no way I can get the snails from the jave moss and other plants or out of the sand. I put em in feed 1 pellet a week and make them hunt there food down. The little ones are mirror s of there parents stripes and all.
