Odd Snails...


Recommended Posts

In my tropical tank i found these snails, at first i thought it was

a pest snail. But i looked closer and it has a shell like a ramshorn

but its about 1 cm... I have about 5 or so in my tank now.

Are theses rams?, Can they live in a tank without a filter (My beta tank)

Are they any harm to my other snails (Trumpet snails and a brig) ?

def looks like red ramshorn to me...a little baby one!!! theyre so so cute when theyre babies!!!

yes they can live wiht a betta, but make sure to wipe off all the eggs when youclean or theyll move your betta right outta his little house...they dont need filtration necessairly....just regualr water changes

they dont bother other snails and they are pest snails!! :D probably not with a betta though...easy enough to get rid of eggs :blink:

I don't want the tropical 15 gallon tank to be filled with rams lol .

Thanks again,

Alex

Yes becuase that is what happened to me and they might even be asexual which means they do not need a partner to have babies.

Hope i was help!!!!

hmmm...alex...if they were mating, then they probably arent red ramshorns...they do it all by themselves...i ended up with 300+ and I orignally bought 1.

i guess im wrong!
