Assassins are a really kewl little snail,
I started with about 12 and in just 6 months I had hundreds of babies appear up from the gravel one day.
Since then, I keep them in all my tanks with gravel/sand in it, they do like to burrow and that seems to be where the young hide until old enough to venture out amongst the other creatures top side.
They go good with most anything that doesn't pester them to death,
They won't bother snails bigger then themselves either unless they are super hungry, At which time they may gang up on a larger snail, although I have rarely seen this happen if you feed them enough,
they'll eat most anything, But I have found they tend to prefer the pond/Bladder snails over all the other types, Ramshorn seems to be a second choice with the trumpets taking up the rear.
just a few short months ago I had an explosion of pond snails in a 15 gallon full of cherry shrimps,
I dropped in 50 assassins and I was very pleased with the results, as always these guys rock, Less then a week and no pond snails to be found,
I sell assassin as i always have lots of them< bUT ALAS I'm in Canada.
