    Baby Assassin Snails and growing

    Anyone grown assassin snails from egg to full size?

    I have a few in a tank, see many eggs and have several dozens of small babies but never see new adults.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    I don't have any other snails in that tank.

    Thanks in advance!

    You sure that isn't a Malaysian trumpet snail?

    hmmm ok then. Thanks. Then that's odd, because I haven't seen adult MTSs in my tank.

    Thanks!!!

    Sure. Here are 2 of the 5 adults that are in this tank. The others are hidden.

    Baby assassin snails have the same black and yellow coloring as the adult snails.

    The most likely reason you don't see adult MTS is because of those Assassin snails.
