    Are Assassin snails heavy poopers like Nerites are?

    I have 2 Nerite snails in a 10 gallon tank and the amount of poop in the tank is unbelievable and it's big like a cat. Once the poop is layed it's there forever until removed by cleaning the tank. I don't even feed the snails, their food comes from whatever they are finding on the glass, I tried feeding them algae wafers, but they never eat it.

    I'm thinking about getting rid of my Nerites because the mess is so large.

    To answer your underlined question, no, they are not. I'd treat them as similar to neon tetras.
