I have a big snail problem in my planted 20 long and I don't really want to use chemicals to get rid of them. Could I use one or two assassin snails? What are you experiences with these guys?
If I buy 1 I shouldn't have a problem with breeding right?I got 3 for my 100 gallon tank and the pest snails are gone, You won't notice the dent they put into the pest snail population at first, but after a while you will notice empty shells and lack of pests. Assassin snails will breed on you 2, the good thing is I get $2 a piece for my access assassin snails.
Ok that's good to hear, thanks!Not a problem, it takes 2 assassins to breed, unlike some of the pest snails that can reproduce asexually. Assassin snails are also slower reproducing.
