Talking Assassins-Dine Time

Last night, I decided to grab several of my MTS and feed them to my assassin snails. I dropped all of them at once into the den and two assassins buried underneath appeared immediately and grabbed two at once.

There's another two still mating and the female didn't hesitate to crawl at a nearby MTS and attacked it while the male is still latching on it.



Sixth assassin came into the scene...


...and grabbed the food of the fifth assassin. It gave up eventually and scooted off to find another after the fifth one refuses to budge.


The female who was mated earlier by the male, finished her first meal and went off to the fifth assassin's meal. She and her mate engaged the fifth into a tug-o-war.


It was rather frightening that the female is overpowering the fifth assassin and the fifth one eventually conceded defeat and scooted off to find another prey. It was eating a MTS similar in its size.


The 7th eating his own share by himself.

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.

i have seriously thought about letting MTS infest my tank just so i have a reason to get assassins. is that wrong ? hehe thanks for the play by play.

One bright day in the middle of the night, two dead boys got up to fight. Back to back they faced each other, pulled their swords and shot each other. One deaf cop he heard this noise and came and killed these two dead boys. If you dont believe this lie is true ask the blind man, he saw it too.

They eat commercial foods but protein based foods such as bloodworms are still important. PM me if you want some and I can lead you to some sellers whom you can trust.
