I was looking for assasin snail to rid my tank of other algea snails that come with the plants i bought. Found them in a local LFS bought 5 home was happy finally able to rid those small little pest. I decided to play it safe and drop one in.

It start to climb the wall and move around along the edge of the water. Suddenly it unlatch and drop itself like a commando doing a flyborne jump..... The next thing i realise it landed on my golden eye tiger ...... and wrap itself on it.......... i was shock and quickly took it out.

I went to my toolbox took and hammer and make it into a messy goo.

Damn piss and sad now i m left with one golden eye... so hard to find it in LFS here. :cry::cry:>(>(

This happened to me too recently. Witnessed a snail attack one of my cherry shrimp - so it does happen!

I have dump them a very painful experience. I resort to catching my pest snails with tong and princers.
