grin Brilliant! I'm getting a dwarf puffer soon so I'm trying to get more snails. Do assassins reproduce hermaphroditically like malaysian trumpet snails then?

I have no idea! i stupidly assumed that if i only had one we wouldn't get any babies lol
i guess she was already pregnant when we got her

they don't breed very fast tho, hence being useful for keeping pest snails under control without overtaking the tank themselves.
