Assorted Ramshorn Snails - 10 Pack

Ramshorn snails are a great addition to any aquarium. Not only can they display some stunning shell and body colors, Ramshorn snails serve many useful purposes for any aquarium. A major benefit of snails is that they clean the aquarium glass, plants, substrates and other tank décor of algae. Other benefits of keeping snails are listed below. While snails are great for most aquarium, they can also serve another very useful purpose: live food. Fish like pea puffers need a live food source and baby Ramshorn snails can be just that. 

You will receive an assortment of Ramshorn snails ranging from brown to blue to leopard spotted. We do our best to send a good mix of colors and patterns but we are limited to availability. Therefore, we can not accept requests for specific colors. Most snails will be the size of a marble in diameter or slightly smaller. 

Main Benefits:

  • Snails help keep a shrimp tank from re-cycling by providing an adequate bio-load
  • Eat left over food to prevent ammonia spikes
  • Hardy so they can adjust to most water parameters 
  • Great live food source for pea puffers and predatory fish 

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

Please note: During shipping, snails sometimes go into a hibernation-like state and may not become fully active for up to a week once acclimated to your aquarium.

Ramshorn snails

I ordered a group of 10 snails. 12 were shipped but 2 died in transit so I still ended up with 10. All 10 currently seem to be healthy and thriving. I have also noticed SO MANY egg cases in the tank! It seems I will soon have a quite the colony going!
