    Hi Everyone

    My new batch of Assassins are ready. Sold about 50 privately already.
    Have about another 30 left.

    Have been breeding them for over a year already and had 3 batches already.
    They eat well and loves eating other smaller snails, but not their own kind.
    They have been raised on wafers aswell.

    Shipping is no problem as they can go 4 days without air and food.
    Have done many successful shippings through Postnet.

    Let your orders flow.

    Yes, they not asexual like other snails.

    They wont take over your tank...once the snails are eradicated, they'll eat high protein fish food, but because of the lack of snails (pure protein basically) they will stop reproducing. Plus...they only lay one egg at a time (not those jelly clutches of 20 eggs like pest snails)

    Nice, because the ramsons are trying to take over and i think some assassins would save me a lot of effort. (almost like automating the process, sort of haha)

    Deadpool, the only way for me to know male & female is to take 2 that are busy. Any other way of knowing with these Assassins?

    Nope...they look exactly the same. It's a case of luck (if you have 2)...best best...throw at least 6 or 7 in a tank

    Only issue is the softwater and CO2 tanks for them.. but they are pretty awesome snails to keep.
