Black Ramshorn Snail (Indoplanorbus exustus)
The Black Ramshorn Snail is a fairly uncommon Indonesian species that has all of the great qualities of its relatives, including great scavenging abilities and hardiness!
- pH level range: 7.0 and up
- Temperature range: 60 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit
- Water type: Soft to hard
- Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of snails (Nerite snails, Mystery Snails, Sulawesi Snails, etc.), dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Sakura Fire Red Cherry Shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish.
- Additional notes: Ramshorn snails are not picky at all about their water parameters, and they tend to reproduce like crazy in almost any conditions. If you run into problems with snail overpopulation, a few Assassin Snails will quickly take care of the problem. Ramshorn snails eat algae, waste, and invertebrate pellets or fish food. Snails are very sensitive to copper, so watch out for copper if you use tap water in your tank.
