    Hi,

    Anyone know what this snail is called? Started with 1 last week, now have 5, Wondering whether to kindly replace with assassin or not

    Looks like your common pond or bladder snail. I've rid a tank of them by just removing them when I saw them.

    You can post another picture and I can make sure, it's possible it's something similar like a faucet snail. But first glance it does appear to be either a pond or bladder snail

    Not sure if that will help, theres barry harry larry gary and jeff, I think thats harry and jeff. I dont really want to kill them as I was going to buy snails anyway, but if they are just going to multiply like rabbits then I will just get some assassins instead

    Definitely a bladder snail. They will multiply like rabbits, but assassins multiply too. If you get an assassin snail it will keep the population in check and won't multiply.
