Assassins eat shrimp. I have three together. They will eat sinking flakes but prefer snails. When they breed it takes a while to grow up and the babies are commonly eaten. I got mine at petco for a few dollars each. In a planted tank I would let a few pond nails in a give them a month. When you put he assassins in they will gorge themselves.

Yeah I would have gotten some assasins for my snail infestation prob, but they don't seel them at any of my LPS and I didn't check my LFS. Either way, my snail prob died down..

If you can't find them at petco/petsmart, try any local fish store of yours and they will probably have them.. Good luck!

They love to burrow in sand. That kind of holds back sales. I have had 2 of mine for a year. At petco they last a few days.
