    Hi Shawn, Thank you,

    This will be the first time i have kept Assassins ?? I hate the little round snails:mad: So thought i would give Assassin's a try. They look good plus have a Cool name too :D

    Did a bit of reading on them before i bought them :D
    Some good info in this link.

    I had also problems with snails , and by introducing several assassins in the tank I got rid of them really quick.

    The rough texture and their colourings contrast with the clean bright green of the plants.

    A perfect mixture of nature at work.

    Thank you for posting those photos, they would be the best photos of the Assassins I have seen.

    What do you feed them on when all the snails have gone?

    "Hire an Assassin" reasonable rates

    Hi Keith Thank you :)

    They are fantastic looking snails .Been trying to get a photo of one eating a snail:whistle: Seen a couple of empty shells so they are hunting :cool:
    After all the snails are gone they will eat fish food:cool: Or move them to another tank :D
