    I bought a couple assassin Snails to take care of some pond Snails. Quite effective at doing this and I kind of like them in the tank. However pond Snails are now gone, what to feed the assassin? Will they just pillage the tank and eat what does not get eaten or do then need protein?

    They'll storm your tank looking for any delicious natural algae and detritus
    You can also give them wafers, fish flakes/pellets, and some bloodworms or brine shrimp for protein if they can get any and their neighbors don't eat it all lol

    Yes that is the problem how to ensure they get food first... wonder if I could put them in a container for a day or so once a week and feed them directly?
