Introducing Assassin Snails, a unique and beneficial addition to freshwater aquariums, available at Aquarium Roots. Also known as Clea helena, these snails are prized for their predatory nature, as they feed on other snails, helping to control their population in the tank.

Assassin Snails are highly effective at keeping snail populations in check, making them popular among aquarists dealing with snail overgrowth issues. They are relatively low-maintenance and can thrive in a variety of water conditions, making them suitable for beginner and experienced aquarists alike.
