Anentome Helena (Assassin Snail )



Assassin Snails (Clea helena) are one of the most useful animals in the aquarium hobby. They will obliterate unwanted pest snails and eliminate the need to use harsh, snail-killing chemicals in your aquarium.

When housing them with dwarf shrimp. There is a slight risk of an assassin snail eating a dwarf shrimp from time to time. They would much prefer to eat snails, but if given the opportunity there is a chance they could get a shrimp. So caution must be used when housing with other snails and dwarf shrimp.
