    Just don't know anything about assassin snails sorry. Maybe somebody else will have an idea.

    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.

    They should be fine on pellets or anyother protien foods...dead fish, cichlid pettets and flakes.

    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 images of there parents stripes and all.
