Hello everyone,

I have some more A. helena assassin snails for available for sale again. These are the snails that seek out and feed on other snails in your tank and other than empty snail shells from their meals, do their best to keep your tank pretty clean. Currently able to sell in packages of 5 for $30 plus $10 USPS priority shipping (which includes heatpack if necessary). Shipping size of the snails is approximately pea size.

Thanks.

These snails are definitely worth the purchase! They are doing what they were promised to do: eat problematic snails that have overrun my tank!

Free bump!

My initial thought was no, but that would be totally dependent on size. The adult size of the assassin snails would be around nickel to slightly larger. So I would think that in most cases, your average mystery snail would be much too large of a prey. But they would probably try their best with young mystery snails. That being said, I do not have any mystery snails, so I don't have any personal experience on this to share.

They look awesome! Do they do okay if there aren't many of those pest snails? I've only got a couple of them(literally)

Yes, these are snails bred in my own tank. I purchased a handful of them this summer from someone in the Netherlands, and about October, I began to notice little babies all around the tank. For me, they seem to have been breeding very well. Have others had problems with their breeding?
