Assassin snails are one of the most useful animals in the aquarium hobby. I came across them when I had snail infested tanks, but did not want to use harsh chemicals to kill the snails. Five assassin snails will destroy a pest snail population very quickly. We have had 30 gallon tanks that were totally overrun with unwanted MTS Snails, and five "assassins" dealt with over 100 of them within a week.

These snails have a very attractive coloration as well. Because of the black-and-yellow striping, they look fantastic on both light and dark-colored substrates. Assassin snails grow to about 2" long when fully grown.

- PH level range: 6.5 to 7.5
- Temperature range: 68 to 74 degrees Fahrenheit
- Water type: Soft to hard
- Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Sakura Fire Red Cherry Shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, etc.), and small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish. They eat all other types of snails that are their size or smaller, but they will not harm snails that are larger (such as Mystery snails, Giant Sulawesi snails, larger Nerite snails). However, a group of assassin snails may gang up on a larger snail and cause it harm.
- Additional notes: Having good substrate is important with Assassin Snails, as they love to burrow in it. Other than snails, they eat leftover fish flakes or invertebrate pellets. Snails are very sensitive to copper, so watch out for copper if you use tap water in your tank.

  • Removes all pest snails including pond snails, bladder snails, ramshorn snails, Malaysian trumpet snails (MTS), and more.

  • Beautiful black and yellow coloration.

  • Will not attack anything but snails - safe to keep with shrimp, fish, live plants, etc.

  • These snails burrow themselves in the substrate to clean up waste.

  • All Aquatic ArtsTM (formerly InvertObsessionTM) brand plants and animals come with a 100% live arrival guarantee, plus free email support directly from the owners!
