I put about 10 assassins in my 720 litre tank which also is home to about 5 Adult Nerites. They have virtually eradicated my MTS, which is great, and they have left the nerites alone.

But this maybe due to them having enough MTS to kill.... :D

i might get say 2 of these guys and see if they can eradicate some smaller snails (do they eat little ones, about 5mm long?)
