I think the shrimp would be fine in with the assassins because while the assassins can go really fast, the shrimp dart faster. But snail eggs will come, just make sure there is LOTS of food.

An assassins stratigy is to bury in sand. Or patrol there turf. I have heard many cases of them eating shrimp.

i found a pond snail in my 5 gallon last night,so i threw him into my 14 gallon where there is no assasin snails as hes the only pond snail ive found,today is full of bonuses,not only did i get a pond snail , i also found 8 assasin snail eggs attached to various pieces of gravel :)

i took the pieces of gravel out and placed them in my 14 gallon as im afraid they will get smashed up when i vacum the gravel.im sure there is a couple more eggs i missed,so hopefully now i have eggs in both tanks :) when the babies hatch in the 14 gal ill put them back into the 5 so i can keep growing my feeder snails in my 14.. wish me luck,i hope these babies hatch!! :)


still the one big snail that looks female constantly has that male on her back,so strange,its like they are mating for over a week and a half now non stop,.madness
