Care of Assassin Snails?

Hi, I'm thinking about getting some Assassin snails for my 10gal NPT. I'll have one male betta and some RCS, not sure how many yet.

I was wondering how many can you have in one tank? Is it recommended to only have one? I don't want them to attack each other, especially since I won't have any common snails in there for them to hunt on. How often do they reproduce if I have more than one? I opted not to get MTS since I don't want to manually remove a bunch of them all the time.

How about feeding? Like I said it is a NPT so there will be organic material, but I want them to have enough so they dont eat each other or my shrimp. I was recommended algae wafers for my shrimp, would they like this too? Also, adding extra fish food is an option I heard, but I'm unsure how you'd do this without having your fish eat it instead and overfeeding it.

they are meat eaters,u can feed them frozen blood worms or frozen brine shrimp, you can have loads in a tank that size, start off with 3 - 5 and see if they will breed for you,from what i hear they reproduce very slow and theres always the chance that u could get all males or all females and then they will never breed.
