Having started with 4, and then adding 5 more assassins, I must say that once you get them established, they decimate other snails. I now have to leave a few of my tanks free of them, so I have enough snail food! Very pretty little things, and I see mine breeding quite often.

Yes, they do breed easily.
I now have them in 3 aquariums and all the other snails are eaten including Zebra Nerits which fell on their backs and couldn't get back on "foot".

Any who, I have a 4th tank with some Tylomelania sp Gold snails (4 baby snails which I raised) in it as well as some MTS which I am happy to have. This aquarium needs new planting at the moment and I can not take the plants from my other tanks because of fear that some Killer Snail's eggs might by accident move along and harm my Tylomelania population.

I am telling you, Anentome helenas are a very nice snail, but doesn't leave much space for other types of snails so be warned, if you are a snail lover and would like to keep other types of snails stay well away from them Wink

Regards, Dusko
