    It seems my new assassin snails are doing the beast with 2 shells and lots of wiggly appendages. I haven't had them much more than a week. 20180422_134431.jpg

    Wait till you have babies! I remember the first time I found a baby assassin snail I was so proud and it wasn't even my child lol

    I have them with cherries and in over a year I've only ever seen them catch one shrimp... I more often see the shrimp riding them around. The one shrimp they caught was likely sick and whole they're there my shrimp population has continued to expand just as quickly as before I added them. If you have a healthy shrimp population assassins likely aren't going to make an impact even of they do happen occasionally across an unlucky shrimp when they are hunting. :)

    My assassins are all in with cherries.
    Would like to eat them, but I've never seen one being caught or eaten. In my opinion cherries are by far too fast.
