If you want my advice, I would 'seed' another tank with MTS, so you have two tanks with them... Then add 4-5 assassins to your main tank. They breed VERY slowly, and then you finally get up to 10-12 adults, sell them on the classifieds forum on this site, and add a few more MTS. You'll get a feed for how many assassins will wipe out the MTS, and make some money on the side.

(Maybe I'm not offering selfless advice here, I need to buy some cheap assassins.)

Males are smaller. My female assassins started mating with half inch to inch sized males when they reached an inch size.

Sorry should have been more clear, i meant to ask when the MTS start to breed. i don't want to get the assassins when i only have small non breeding MTS.

I found assassins at my LFS for only $2.99ea how much are they usually?
