    Lol hello Junne can't say I like assassin snails but I understand why you got one with the mts overload how about name him after an assassin from assassins creed like Altiar or Ezio or the character who play them in the animus Desmond lol the new assassin is called Connor.

    What can I say I'm a gaming geek too ;)

    Wow I guess I really DON'T KNOW my assassins!!! LOL
    Hmmmm..... Also, is it typical for them to just bury themselves in the sand? I acclimated him for about 30 minutes and right after I put him in the tank, he went right under the sand!!!! I thought for some reason he was going to get right to work!!! LOL Maybe I got a lazy one.............

    It is very normal for Assassin snails to bury themselves. This is how they ambush their intended target. Also, they are far more active at night. I never see mine during the day.

    I have never owned an assassin (although I am one! :p) But I believe as mentioned, they lay in wait and then spring out at other inverts as they sneak past.

    Also, do they assassinate each other? (Just curious)

    Great names! Thanks!
    Yesterday, after uncovering himself, ( I am saying HE ) I noticed he had one of the largest MTS snails in the tank! LOL
    There are millions of babies and he chose one of the larger ones! First hit! Mission accomplished!!!!

    BTW - do they eat the SHELL AND ALL????

    This morning, he is "hiding"

    They do not eat the shell, so there will be lots of empty shells around soon. :) Leave them in the tank, they leach calcium that is good for the living snails' shells.

    Okay. So if anyone knows the videogame series "Assassin's Creed" then you will understand these names. Some good ones would be Conner, Ezio (Pronounced Etzio), and Altair (Pronounced Altaiair). I hope you like them!
