Odd question this one, but are they breedable in home aquariums? I know they are basically freshwater welks, but are the larvae still planktonic like nerites?

Hello!
Yes you can easily breed Assassin snails. They lay eggs in little rectangular parcels - about 1mm long - in cracks and crevices on rocks and ornaments mainly. I have found that they only really lay 1 at a time. The eggs take a while to hatch and then the babies disappear into the substrate. They do not emerge again until about 4-5mm in my experience. They will eat shrimp pellets if you dont have any snails small enough to eat to begin with.
Hope this helps! Laughing

I'm sure that they'll breed in fresh water, as a few days ago I found a very little one moving on the substrate. It's exactly like the "big" ones, but a miniture. Laughing

The tank is well planted & there are about 15 Assassin snails, together with Nerites & other fish.

Sounds like something to try then! Tiny babies must be worth it.

the pictures speak for themselves, the snail be resting on its left side after a while it opens and on the right side will see the sex..

I understand, the photos are very good! Well timed.

Males then have a penis like apple snails.
