Snails in tropical fish tank - help please! - VeggieBoards
i'm wondering about my new tropical fish tank if i can have snails as i had them with ..
Although they are not really group animals, keeping at least 3-4 assassin snails is usually recommended. There seems to be a bit confusion about the minimum tank size for them, but at least 10 gallons (38L) should definitely be enough for a group that size! Because assassin snails naturally bury themselves and wait for their prey to appear a sand is preferred, although it’s not a must. The water should ideally not be too soft, as this could lead to deterioration of the shell, and as with all tropical fish and invertebrates the aquarium should be filtered, heated, fully cycled and free of ammonia and nitrites.
Just a quick reminder that common Pond Snails in your Tropical Fish Tank will increase your Tank's bio-load. Snails poop just like every other animal in your Freshwater Aquarium.

Others suggest that Ivory Snails can do well in less clear, less moving, murky tank water. That may be true, but my personal preference is clear tank water for aesthetic purposes.
