Hi,

Have posted before about my Assassin snails breeding ... I have today spotted 4 little babies WOOHOO .. sorry, really happy about this.

However something occurred to me, they are really small and how do I avoid sucking them up when I vacuum the tank (I do small daily water changes)?

Do I move them to the 7G tank (with shrimp and crab) or the 15G tank with the Betta, frog and clown plec? Should I just leave them where they are in the 65G tank?

Today I used a net when emptying the water I had syphoned from the bucket and found myself examining all the poop caught in the net for baby assassins.

Anyway, all input is welcome Smiley
Thanks

if they are starting to breed you can just leave them where they are. you may suck out a few but they will be repopulated

Thanks for the reply guys, I will continue my daily gravel vacs (to remove plec poo) and hopefully avoid removing the babies.  Am sure there will still be many others in the tank I have yet to see.

Cheers for reassuring me really I guess Smiley

The sad thing is that if I'm right, I'll never be able to rub it in.
