These beautiful Brown Ramshorn Snails are a very popular pet in the aquarium hobby as they are peaceful and super easy to care for and make a great small cleanup crew! These snails love eating soft algae and any leftover food in an aquarium. They do not eat live plants, only plants that may be dying. They can breed rapidly if there is an abundance of food in an aquarium, but limiting the amount of food they receive can help keep their population low. They also make for excellent feeder snails for loaches, pufferfish, Oscars, etc.

NOTE: the order will mostly consist of a mix of juvenile snails and maybe a few adults depending on what we have in stock. 

ADVANTAGES:
If one regards an aquarium as an independent ecological system, snails (and also other invertebrates such as shrimps) cover a useful, almost irreplaceable function. They do not exclusively eat biofilms and growths - and are therefore important algivores - but they also eat all the “dirt” that’s accumulating in your tank. More specifically sludge, fish dung, dead plant parts, carcasses, and food leftovers. All of these things contain organic substances that - if not utilized -increase the water load and also the number of bacteria in the water. Snails eat organic garbage. As so-called consumers, they process food leftovers and pass them down the food chain. Finally, bacteria and other microorganisms - the decomposers - break up the remnants into their mineral constituents.
