This listing is for a 5 pack of captive bred blue ramshorn snail for $12. They are fairly small but grow quickly. Ultimate shell diameter is about 2/3 to 3/4 of an inch. These snails are planispiral, in that their shells look like flat coils.
Employing a ramshorn snail into your aquatic insect tank not only adds another interesting organism with respect to diversity, but they are very helpful in preventing that layer of algae that might begin to grow on various surfaces. They also seem to nibble on remains of other organic debris and waste. They may nibble on more delicate species of aquatic plants in your tank. This can apparently be minimized by dropping some lettuce into their tanks or boiled vegetables, but we don’t do that and don’t see any obvious evidence of plant damage with the ten or so species of plants we keep in our aquatic insect tanks.
The snails can increase their population but are large enough to be scooped or picked out rather easily, even when small. Some hobbyists will crush the snails and use them as feeders. We prefer to sell them! 😉
They seem compatible with all the aquatic insects we offer on the website.
