Maximum quantity available reached.
Product Description

Malaysian trumpet snails are a perfect addition to any shrimp tank. The snails will help prevent gas build ups in the substrate and also help prevent a tank from re-cycling due to lack of bio-load. These snails will not over populate a tank unless over feeding occurs. Snails will be equal to or larger than 1/4 of an inch. 

Please Note: Malaysian Trumpet Snails are illegal to own and purchase in Illinois and Wisconsin. Please be responsible and do not release any aquatic life into local waterways. 

Main Benefits:

  • Snails help keep a shrimp tank from re-cycling by provided adequate bio-load
  • By burrowing into the substrates, these snails help keep turn the substrate which prevents gas build up. 
  • Eat left over food to prevent ammonia spikes
  • Hardy so they can adjust to most water parameters 

When Receiving Snails: 

  1. Place the snails in a corner of the tank and make a mental note where they were place
  2. Watch the snails over 7 days, if they do not move remove them from the aquarium
  3. Give the snails a smell and if they stink, then they are dead
  4. If they do not smell, add them back to the aquarium and give it another 3 days
  5. It is common for snails to burrow into the substrate and disappear from sight

Exactly what I needed

I have these in my main tank and wanted to get some for my additional nano builds but as usual, most places don't have them or are out-of-stock. This pack is a good enough size to solve the issue.

I especially appreciate the personal touches that you get with Flip Aquatics. You get to know who prepared and packed your order, and you get a swedish fish candy.

Amazing quality

Absolutely impressed by the quality of the snails and how they were shipped. All 10 are burrowing throughout our tank and are providing tons of entertainment for my kids.

Love my mts

Great batch of trumpet snails! Well packaged, all alive and started feeding on nano blocks during acclimation drip. Moved then into my plant only aquarium after a couple hours and they promptly tucked themselves into my sand substrate. Next morning I found them roaming around and doing cleanup duty. I’ve been plucking them out and moving them into all my aquariums (every tank has Covia PFS). Also, the wife says thank you for the Swedish fish, it’s her favorite! Awesome job, thank you flip aquatics!
