Product Description

Assassin snails are one of the most effective ways to remove pest snails in a small aquarium. They stay small in size and breed rather slowly making it easy to control their population. Assassin snails are pretty hardy which make them a great addition to almost all conditions. 

The assassin snails will be near adult size which is usually around 1/4 of an inch.

Main Benefits:

  • Great way to remove unwanted snails in an aquarium
  • Known to eat shrimp on rare occasions 
  • Burrow into the substrate and help prevent gas buildups 
  • Hardy so they can adjust to most water parameters 

When Receiving Snails: 

  1. Place the snails in a corner of the tank and make a mental note where they were place
  2. Watch the snails over 7 days, if they do not move remove them from the aquarium
  3. Give the snails a smell and if they stink, then they are dead
  4. If they do not smell, add them back to the aquarium and give it another 3 days
  5. It is common for snails to burrow into the substrate and disappear from sight

Please note: During shipping, snails sometimes go into a hibernation-like state and may not become fully active for up to a week once acclimated to your aquarium.

Outstanding as always

I've come to rely on flip and know full well their quality, but this was exceptional even for them. After the requisite acclimation steps and time, all six snails began moving immediately upon touching the bottom of the tank. Not even an hour later, all six have moved from their original corner. Some have burrowed down into the substrate, and one has already begun eating a pest snail. Couldn't be happier.

So Beautiful

I see guidance all over the web about putting new snails in a corner and waiting 24 hours to see if they have moved to ensure they are alive. The 6 I received from Flip Aquatics were moving in the shipment bag and continued as soon as I introduced to the tank. Very pleased!

Healthy and fast delivery

I've been searching for assassin snails literally at every local fish store in my area and none of them seem to carry them (and if they did, they were all dead in the tank). I've ordered shrimps from Flip Aquatics before and they came super healthy so I decided to give the snails a try. Not only did they get delivered very fast, but all of the snails that got delivered were also alive and healthy! They also included an extra one as well and that one also survived. My tank was full of pest snails, and they all sure are doing a good job clearing them up. Very happy with my purchase.

They're Snails!

Newbie tip: If these are your first snails shipped to you, they may need a few hours to a few days to wake up from hibernation if they got cold.
