Hi there guys, I've just bought a Selawesi Snail as I was looking for something slightly different and not too big as I only have a small tank and these snails just intrigued me. I have woken up and cannot find it in my tank, does anybody know their much about their behaviour? I've read they're not too keen on bright lights. I bought very small Selawesi as I wanted to watch it grow in my tank.
Really new snail to the aquarium trade and not much is know about them.
Beautiful large snail, very rare to find in the aquarium trade. Can be found in Differnent colours and grows to about 8cm in size. Very peaceful snail that will stay most of the time on substrate or tank glass, will not harm plants.
Water need to be of good quaility, hard (calcium is needed for the shell), warm (25C - 27C) and high Ph (7.2 - 8.5). Copper and salt will kill these snails.
Feed on a diet of algae, left over fish food, par-boiled vegetables and fruit.
These snails are not hermaphrodites and lays one egg.
