These snails are great for a variety of freshwater fish tanks including goldfish and tropical fish. .
Removes and cleans most kinds of algae naturally for a more beautiful fish tank and healthier plants.
Great source of food for many kinds of fish.
Break down fish waste for a more efficient nitrogen cycle.
Eats uneaten food at the bottom of the tank.
I recommend acclimating your new snails by adding 1 TB of tank water every 10 minutes over the course of an hour, then transferring to your fish tank. This helps ease the shock of new water parameters.
They will happily eat many kinds of algae, and will gratefully accept cucumber slices, lettuce and spinach. For the most beautiful shells, feeding a calcium-enriched invertebrate food will yield the best results. Snails prefer harder water but can adapt to softer water if enough calcium is supplied through diet. .
The population of these snails is self-regulating. In an aquarium with a lot of food, they will multiply. When food becomes scarce, they die off. Many fishkeepers believe that if your tank has a lot of snails, it is because your tank needs them to consume all the excess nutrients. However, many fish will happily keep their population in check by consuming the baby snails as a food source, including loaches and goldfish. .
If you have large fish that may eat small snails and you want the snails to live in your tank, you can use a glass jar or small aquariumto grow the littler snails out until they are big enough. Simply change water as needed or add live plants. Feeding 1-2x weekly with a small amount of algae wafer or invert pellet is a good idea. Supplying a spinach leaf to graze on is as well. The warmer the water, the faster they grow. .
