Assassin snails

Post by Sandman1969 on Tue Apr 21, 2015 1:30 pm

I am curious to know if they tend to sleep in one spot while attached to the side of the tank?
I have 2 in my 130G and the one is sitting just above the pump for my filter & has not moved for hours.


Is that normal?

Well, the 2 I have finally came across each other & have been hanging together for maybe 4hrs now. They are up close & personal with each other.

Also, on a side note, I think I need to keep an eye on my trumpet snails as there's now a few babies in the tank.

Yes the MTS...I got my 55g 27 days ago and found 5...there are now 24 at least in there! Out 5 Assassin snails, I only see 3 at a time. When I do see them on the glass...they seem to be on the prowl.
Sounds like maybe you have a male and female...really not sure but I would say so if they are up close and personal :)Google "Assassin snail breeding" and check the pics...I think there is a Congrats in order for you @Sandman1969 :Steviesnail

Normally when I see mine on the glass, they are moving.
Sometimes I don't see any in days and then suddenly I see many of them crawling around. In my tanks they are proliferous and from my original 5 I know have at least 20.
