Was there someone who had Assassin snails here for sale??
The assassin snails I sell are mostly at mature adult size. I feed them very high quality algae, protein based food to help keep them healthy and grow to their fullest, so you know, I have to make some back in this hobby.. And at adult sizes, you would expect them to be close to 5.00. I take out most of the adults that have just reached maturity.I didn't want to say anything on that guy's thread, but $5 per snail is a bit overpriced. I've seen them here and other forums usually for $2.50 - $3.00. aquabid seems somewhat reasonable if you buy 10 or so.
How many are you looking for vancat?
I don't recall me selling any fish to you? I have not sold any fish to you ever before, I am certain of it..@ Franzi- No specific amount....I don't know much about them but would like to get rid of some snails.
Yeah, that dude sold me some fish a while back and I didn't really like how he did business.
Hmm... well, if you're breeding cichlids or something in that tank, they would go after the eggs. Of course, so would ramshorns or pond snails. Other than that, I'm having a hard time coming up with any drawbacks... some people suggest they may attack shrimp, but I've found my cherries (who share a tank with the assassins) get along fine. The snails would certainly eat the body of an already-dead shrimp if they came across it, but I don't think they go out of their way to hunt down live shrimp. They seem to prefer slower prey...hmm~ no prob about the hijack. I'd like to know more about them anyway. Can you (or anyone else) tell me, is there any down side to them?
