I had these guys for a couple weeks now - 7 of them. I had 8 but the smallest one buried himself and died. I had them in the betta tanks and they burrowed in the gravel (can't afford black atm and I don't want to use regular sand) so I noticed a lot of extra waste in the tanks. Cleaned them and then put the snails in little betta cups with a bit of sand (I just don't want to use the reg sand for my bettas, I like them on black gravel) they don't need that much room do they?? They'll be fine in the small cups with sand? That way I can keep an eye on them and make sure they're all eating etc.
There is not a lot of info on assassins other than dropping them in a tank infested with nuisance snails. I'm quite enjoying my pond snails (came free with the assassins to kick start breeding
) and watching them clean everything!! And I think assassins are so cute with their siphons!
I'm just wondering if anybody has a good resource of info on the assassins? I've googled about everything I need for basic care and feeding but if there's anything else. Are the cups okay for long term use?
