    Assassins not assassinating

    I have a 300L freshwater which is inundated with trumpet snails. I have done some quick maths and the bottom of my tank is about 5000 sq CM. In any one 25 sq CM patch I can see (this obviously doesn’t account for those under the sand) about 25 snails average. So that means about 5000 trumpet...

One of the two that are always joined seems to have a strange "head", if you like, in the way that it looks a bit crusty rather than...

    Baby Assassin Snail Care

    Hi, I have three adult assassin snails in my 70ltr tank at the moment that I bought about 4-5 months ago to deal with a pest snail problem I was having at the time. Between the snails and large water changes, they done their job, so i'm glad I got them. This morning, I spotted a baby assassin...
