Asassin snail

Does anyone know how to breed these snails? I've heard they don't breed as readily as other snails so I'd like to know before I order them.

I know some people from other forums who keep them and they simply keep a constant supply of 'pest' snails for these snails to prey on. This may enable them to breed although not as prolifically as most snails do. Apparently, they drop 4-6 eggs a month only but I cannot confirm that as I am still looking for these at the moment.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Lupe's right, they breed slowly, and only when they have plentiful live prey for food. Their eggs look square, kinda like mini shark eggs. They're really cool looking actually! You'll want a group of at least 5-6 to count on having both genders and having them breed.

there are some on aquabid.com, $30 shipped. I want to get some and breed them as I can't find ANY in the states and the international shipping is rape just for a couple snails.
