I've been breeding top quality Ramshorns for over 8 years. All specimens have been isolated for 30 days to ensure they don't carry any parasites or flukes. 100% safe for all freshwater aquariums, and even slightly saline environments. Through selective breeding, I've produced many different color morphs, (Leopard-spotted, dappled, red, orange, pink, amber, red-dappled, black...etc.) All fed high-calcium diets and have strong shells. No snails with cracked shells are sold. Snails are sold from 1/3 to 1/2 inch to allow them time to grow into their new home. Can grow to the size of a quarter with proper nutrition. Are hermaphrodites and breed profusely; young are very small and make great food for many species of fish. Easy to rid of if populations grow too large. They don't eat live aquarium plants or fresh fish food, but are helpful as they eat rotten or dying plants and soggy, uneaten fish food. They gather at the water level when water quality is bad or when not enough oxygen is present- great way to tell when a tank needs to be cleaned. Can clean algae infested tanks in days- one of the only organic and safe remedies for hydra infestations. And finally, they're cute as the dickens! :-) Check out my website for more details, links and pictures, and to request certain color morphs. :D
