My local pet stores just don't take care of them right and every time I have gotten a new fish it brings something into my tank.  This was before I knew about having a quarantine tank.  I am just really frustrated about that.   I...

    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.
