I'm moving my assassin snails to our 16 gallon tank to deal with bladder snails in that tank.

I've found 3 of our 4 assassins, so there is one still in the 20 gallon.

Would our large nerite snails be safe in the 20 gallon with a single assassin still in there?

Hello!
This is a very experimental subject, sorta like bettas with shrimp; the could eat them, they could care less. Nerite snails are a little harder for assassins to kill tho (but not impossible). They're anatomy angle and operculum prove to be a challenge to the assassin. Some have tanks with both and they're fine, some have had nerite deaths (even when they were so much bigger). So therefore, monitor your tanks. If any suspicious number go missing, take the nerites or assassin (if found) out.

Hope this helps and best of luck!

There are no nerites in the tank with the assassin.

They are in other tanks at the moment.
