Red Ramshorn Snails

Red 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 Red 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.

Stunning and healthy as always

I have been waiting for red or pink ramshorns to come into stock because I love them. When they did I got two Red Ramshorns. I absolutely adore them. They are so active around my community tank and I’m loveing them. I ordered them along with a plethra of other stock and I am, as always, extremely impressed with the quality of the livestock and the friendly ness of all the employees. I always love supporting them to get truly high quality plants and animals.

Pretty and Active

All the snails came in healthy, active, with good shells. They are beautiful and doing great!

Perfect condition

Not only were they tied incredibly securely, they were all very active when they arrived. They did get a tiny bit cold (that's what I get for ordering snails in winter hahahahaha), but I'm absolutely impressed that the condition they arrived in. I've already got baby snails running around my tank!
