Hi,  I mentioned this in another post a little while ago (but cannot find it now).

10 days or so ago I found 2 of my 3 Assassins stuck together for most of the day then separating and going their own way only to repeat the next day.  Since then I noticed lots of white blob things on particularly my grass plant.  Today I have noticed at least 4 cone shaped tiny snails (about 2mm or so) on the glass, they are almost transparent grey colour.  Are these likely to be baby Assassins?

Should I take one out tomorrow and check?

Cheers

More than likely these are baby assassins.  I would just leave them be.

When in doubt, do a water change.

That only works for the girl baby snails, or viscious raisins. What would the boys be?

Okay, the consensus is Nin-joes for the boys.  Wink
