Blue Rabbit Snails

Blue rabbit snails resemble Malaysian trumpet snails in shape but rabbit snails are much larger in size. The shape and color of rabbit snails are slightly different as well. They are equally as valuable for your aquarium as Malaysian trumpet snails making them a great alternative. Snails will be equal to or larger than 1/4 of an inch.

While we do our best to identify our livestock, it is a possibility that the snails you receive will be Cappuccino Spike Snail (Faunus ater). These snails do breed in freshwater and will reproduce given correct water conditions. 

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. 
  • Snails 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

More Information: 

 Also know as the elephant snails, rabbit snails are very peaceful in nature. They have a great temperament to them and they enjoy exploring the aquarium. They are never aggressive to other inhabitants. Rabbit snails tend to be active throughout the day and night. They do not favor one time or the other to be active. 

Care Parameters: 

  • TDS between 200 and 400 
  • GH between 6 and 15
  • KH between 4 and 8
  • PH around 7.2 to 7.8
  • These parameters are what we keep them at, they can adjust to other parameters as well. Try to stay on the harder side rather than softer water.

Rabbit snails

One of the 2 snails I received is not very active but the other one is.

Nice additions to my tanks

Always pleased!

I’m always pleased and happy with my orders! If there’s ever a problem, which isn’t often, they always take care of it!

Amazing snails, not actual rabbit snails however. Still a unique and awesome snail to keep though.

I love these snails so much, they're very active and they have an extremely beautiful shell!

Contrary to labeling, these snails aren't actual rabbit snails but actually Cappuccino Spike Snails, a variant of the Black Devil Spike Snail or Lava Snail (Faunus ater)

The snails arrived active and healthy on arrival and quickly acclimated quite well to my tank.

The beauty of their shell pattern and their activity in my tank gives me zero regrets on ending up with spike snails instead of rabbit snails. Only bummer is that they don't reproduce in freshwater (at least as far as knowledge on them goes).

These guys make an amazing addition to my community tank and they also eat the things my nerites refuse to eat like uneaten fish food haha.

Blue Rabbit Snails

Absolutely beautiful snails! Love the deep blue and white spot coloring. Very impressed with the pristine quality of each given the experience I've had with local breeders and erosion. Took two days to arrive, and all three were healthy and adjusted quickly after acclimation. Breeding began within days and I'm very excited to see a colony slowly grow over time. I would happily purchase again!
