Blue Ramshorn Snails

Blue Ramshorn snails are a unique color morph with an amazing shell coloration. They are easily cared for and prefer harder water. 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 Blue Ramshorn snails ranging in size. Most snails will be the size of a marble in diameter or slightly smaller. If planning to order snails online, read below to see the best way to handle receiving snails in the mail. 

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.

Arrived healthy, looks cool

I didn't put the snail directly into the aquarium. Rather, I put the snail and the water it arrived in into a container and over a few hours slowly added water from my aquarium. I could see within seconds, though, that the snail was alive, and now it's chugging along in the aquarium. A modest but nice addition to my little aquarium, which is just a ten gallon one I am using to learn with.

Gorgeous, happy, healthy little snails!

My snails arrived perfectly healthy, and have been doing a great job of cleaning up my tank! I plan on coming back for more when I set up my next tank:)
