Assassin Snail Question....
Okay, I don't know anything about Assassin Snails and I just bought two off of aquabid. Well, it appears that one has died I guess and I can't find the other one in my tank. I received them 3 days ago and slowly acclimated them to my tank by placing them in a bowl and pouring a little bit of my tank water into the bowl every 15 minutes for a couple of hours. I put them in the tank and off they went tracking down the pesky snails in my tank. This morning I was looking in my tank and one of the Assassin Snails hasn't come out of its shell all day. It's just laying there and not moving..... I am assuming it is dead
My water parameters are fine and I have no idea why it would have died just like that. Should I have done something different? I was so excited about getting these snails in hopes that they would help control all these other snails in my tank and now it looks like it was a waste of my money.
How long are these Assassin Snails supposed to live anyway?
