    I like the looks of assassins and I was wondering if anyone has ever introduced pest snails into there tank so they assassin could keep assassins?

    I have a few assassin snails in every aquarium. It will take them a very long time to kill off all the pest snails. At best the assassins will keep the pest snail population in check.

    Sorry I don't understand that part.

    However, from what I understand, even though pest snails/other snails are the preferred food of the assasins they will also take other foods like catfish tablets and such.

    Yes. I have fed my assassins pest snails.

    For awhile I had a colony breeding in one tank... and I'd pick out some for my assassins. But I did a break down of pest snail tank and have just been feeding them sinking wafers lately.
