Assassin Snails are carnivorous, therefore it is not a good idea to keep them with other types of snails. Often these snails will be suggested to people to keep pest snail populations low.
These will hunt and eat Malaysian Trumpet Snails (MTS), Bladder/Pond Snails, Ramshorn Snails, etc. So if you would like to make sure your tank is kept snail free, but still would like the benefit of having snails to help keep your aquarium clean while also stirring up your substrate (that's right, these guys like to burrow down in finer sand and wait for their prey to come snailing by) then get a nice group of Assassin Snails.
They have a rigid cone shaped shell, that is yellow/cream and black striped with a lightly colored, speckled foot.
Minimum Tank Size: 20
Behaviour: Aggressive to other Snails
Temp: 68-76 F
