    I woke up yesterday and went to my tank to find one baby assassin snail. After finding that one, I found loads more. On top of that my little Polka dot is going to give birth again(Praying for an all black to call it shadow)

    What do I have to do to the assassins to help them survive?

    Assassins are hardy and not demanding they eat leftover flakes and fish food if there is no snails also you can feed them with protein base shrimp food
    But if you want them to breed more and grow faster you should give theme high protein food like live snails

    Any particular snail? We have pond and bladder in my sisters tank. Would that work?

    I got maybe two assassins and kept them in separate tanks, i have over a dozen of them that I have transferred from those tanks out and just caught two breeding a few days ago in a tank where they are decimating the ramshorns in the tank. They hunt pond and bladder and ramshorn.

    I got two then another a few years ago. I have 30 plus of them now. I am getting colonies in other tanks too.
