Giant Sulawesi Snails are one of the largest freshwater snails in the world, growing as large as 4 inches as adults. Since they can grow so large, they need room to move, so it's a good idea to avoid dense vegetation or overcrowding in your aquarium. They are decent algae-eaters, but they also feed on leftover food and any kind of fish food. While most aquatic plants are safe from these snails, they have been known to munch on more delicate or thin-leaved plants.
