Assassin Snails don't know math...

SO...

As a part of my Battle against the Pond Snail hitch-hikers I got from one of my plants, I purchased two Assassin Snails when I got my Betta on Saturday.

Sunday night I had to remove one of the Assassin Snails because I believed he was dead. The spiral black shell had nothing in it except for some white stuff. So, into the garbage it went...bringing me down to one Assassin Snail.

Today (Monday) I get up to feed my Betta some pellets a few moments ago, and turn on the light...

Lo and behold, I have two Assassin Snails by the silk Anubias Nana plants at the front of the tank.

I'm very confused at the moment...

The dead one was thrown away. Not sure how that happened, maybe a prank?

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

Still not sure.
As a matter of fact, I found one of the Pond Snails sitting on top of the shell of one of the Assassin Snails.
