Why do you need to get rid of them? How many do you have?

i think i have 7, not sure havent checked. i dont have enough food lol. and i converted my tank to saltwater. all this was an experimental tank for experience on dealing and diagnosing disease. so far this tank had been through nightmares. camanallus worms, difficulty eating, finicky eaters, isopod invasion, aiptasia invasion, shrimp-shrimp incompatability, high ammonia, high nitrate, high nitrite, itch, and other unknowns. and all the inhabitants are all alive except for the unexpected shrimp-shrimp incompatability. lost 2 cleaners :(. and 13 baby guppies. oh yea i forgot to mention i had a case of pests snails. and then i added assassin snails. and then the issue went from to many pests to finding where to get pests to feed the assassins. lol.....

someone should start a "rent assassin snails" business... like people renting goats and sheep to help clear hillside grass every spring.

hahaha, but with inverts you run some risk of parasites and such if the snails end up dying or getting eaten. Also continuous transfer of the snails to waters with different parameters will cause a lot of stress and could cause the snails to develop improperly.
