I've got a Ramshorn snail outbreak in my filtered/cycled 5.5gallon. There's probably over 50 of em (and counting), since it seems like a batch of babies just appeared.

While I only got 3 male guppies (one of em is really small), I know my small tank probably can't handle any other snail eating fish than the Assassin snail. I was wondering how many should I purchase? I'd like to keep the pest snails under control but its not like I need to kill them all in a week or anything, so I'd rather not buy 5 snails with the chance of adding too much bioload, but id also rather not spend the money on only one or two snails if they won't be effective.

Thanks

one. thats a small tank you can easily pick out most of them but after it eats all thye snails youre going to have to supple snails for it to eat.
