Assasin snails #1
Im overrun with snails that came in as eggs on live plants. I've tried baiting them with lettuce and cucumber it the canny little devils jump ship when I pull the veg out of the tank!.
Would an assasin snail be a good idea as ive seen people have had some success with them.
Many thanks
Kate

Hi Jon,
That would be fab thankyou. When the tank was cycling they were the only entertainment in the tank but they have well outstayed their welcome! Obviously Im happy to pay for the snails and the postage. I will message you.
