Don't know where you get your info but assassins will hunt and kill any size snail. I have lots and they will tackle a mystery snail if they could. I feed them pond snails, bladder snails and MTS's. If you only have one assassin snail in a 20 gallon it will go after the pond snails and ramshorn first, but if it gets a chance to hook onto a mystery it will feast on it. Assassin snails eat one snail per day any size. If you want to keep your mystery and Nerites do not get assassin snails. If you have a planted tank and you decide to get a loach it will uproot most of your plants, and they will out grow a 20 in no time.
