Looks like an average pond snail. Watch out, where there's one, there's usually many, many more. They reproduce like rabbits and are very hard to get rid of.

I have to assume that you would not put an assassin snail in with your rare purple footed mystery snails or any other snail you actually want! So what do they eat once the problem snails are gone?

You sell them ... They are highly sought after ... However I do not think they take on bigger snails like mysteries ... Though I would not risk it.

If you do not over feed you should not have a problem with your pond snails. My mom keeps a few in her 5 gal. tank and her betta eats most of the babies as soon as they hatch. She doesn't over feed at all (occasionally drops the mystery snail an algae wafer and he scarfs it up within 1/2 hour) and they've been controlled for the past few months. In fact there's only about 3 adults, all came from the same one named Speedy.

I know I overfeed. It hasn't been a problem yet since I've only had tanks for oh, six weeks or so! I'm trying to get better! It isn't really a problem with my solo male betta but the community tank is a different story! There are a dozen fish in there right now. The baby bettas don't like the New Life Spectrum I just got, they like the BioGold and they need their food to grow! The tetras don't like the pellets, they like the flakes. I don't know what the oto cats like. I give them an algae wafer piece and they are very busy cruising the tank but I don't know what they are eating.
