Captive Bred Ramshorn Snail


Out of stock


Employing a ramshorn snail into your aquatic insect tank not only adds another interesting organism with respect to diversity, they are very helpful in clearing that layer of algae that seems 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.

The snails can increase their population but are large enough to be scooped or picked out rather easily as they grow. Some hobbyists will crush the snails and use them as feeders. We prefer to sell them! 😉

The one we offer are brown and tend to be about half grown in terms of shell diameter. 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.

They seem compatible with all the aquatic insects we offer on the website.

Captive bred here onsite from local Arizona stock. $3 each
