My assasin snails never ate my Apple snail so im sure its ok. They also never bothered my nerite snail.

My Assasin snails have been without snails for a year now... I presume they eat leftover fish food and bloodworms n other meaty foods... Only thing i noticed its they dont breed as much without snais.

I have read on other sites that assasins do eat apples snails. It does make sense that if they get hungry enough then they would eat any snail for the simple fact that is what they eat.

I assumed for over a year that one of my tanks was free of mts but now they have chosen to show themselves again. Nothing new has been added so they have been in the tank but I simply haven't seen them.
