These beautiful Mixed Colored 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 baby/juvenile snails and maybe a few adults depending on what we have in stock. Colors given will be random, but can consist of brown, blue, golden, ivory or pink depending on what we have in stock!
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.
All 10+ snails arrived alive. All the size of a pea so a little on small side but they sent a diverse range of colors and appear to be healthy. Looking forward to watching them grow.
The processing & Shipping time was very quick, all of my snails arrived alive! they were packaged safely & they are all thriving in my tank! I was so happy with the level of service & care that I already placed another order for my 2nd tank!
Ramshorn snails arrived quickly and healthy, super helpful customer service and I will by buying from them in the future!
Was looking for snails, ended up getting that and some more. plants after checking what they had stock. snails and plants got here happy and healthy in 2 days. Thanks
I ordered a couple bunches of the assorted rams horn snails trying to get some colors other than the pink ones I already had. These guys look awesome. The blue leopards are definitely what I was looking for. They all came in alive and were all making their way around my tank a couple minutes after adding them in.
