If you don’t mind a probably-silly question, why are pond snails bad and can you tell me more about assassin snails? I want to understand about the tiny murderers
I actually like pond snails as an animal, but I just have WAY TOO MANY of them in my fishtank. They poop a lot and mess with the water quality. They breed at an impossible rate- hundreds of eggs at a time- and just overtake everything- and if you have one, you’re going to have more, because they can reproduce asexually.
Assassin snails are a whelk- most of those are saltwater, actually. They’re really pretty little snails with rich yellow and brown stripes. They’re carnivores, eating different kinds of inverts- but snails are one of their faves. They breed pretty slowly and have distinct sexes, so they don’t infest an aquarium like the pondies do.
