Clithon sp. "fancy"

Clithon sp. "Fancy" are small snails with fun colors and patterns. Brown is often the basic color with numerous variations, which may or may not have stripes and/or dots. Snails supplied by us have a size of 0.5-1 cm, but they can grow to about 2 cm.

Always be careful about getting used to it (better too slow than too fast)

Water quality
Clithon sp. prefers somewhat harder, slightly alkaline water. Soft, acidic water will have a bad effect on their home. Also keep in mind that snails are sensitive to dissolved metals and chemical compounds. If medicines are used in the water, transfer the snails to another aquarium as a precaution.

Nutrition
In the aquarium they will feed on all kinds of plant material (algae, dead plant remains, etc.), but dead animals will also be eaten. Excess fish food from flakes and food tablets is also eaten. They are real cleaners. They will look for food in all corners of the aquarium. In addition, the window is regularly grazed, so that these animals prove to be a great help in aquarium maintenance. The aquarium should not be too clean for the snails, but preferably there should always be a pile of dirt somewhere where they can forage.

Aquarium type
Snails are also suitable for any aquarium from 30L. It goes without saying that they cannot be kept with snail-eating fish or fish (Botia's, puffer fish, etc.). Clithon species do not reproduce in fresh water, brackish water is needed for this. They do like to sneak out above the water, so they can also climb over the edge. Check regularly for fugitive snails in an open aquarium or preferably use a closed aquarium. Provide plenty of hiding places and they can only live for a few years.

Clithon sp. "Fancy" are nice little snails for the aquarium and will help with maintenance!

Mooie gezonde dieren

Laatst een groep van 20 dieren besteld. Bij aankomst viel direct op dat er een stevige, afsluitbare beker als verpakking gebruikt was. Slim idee! Het transport van de dieren was dus ook prima verlopen.
De slakken zelf zijn nog niet geheel volwassen, daar heb je dus lange tijd wat aan. Ook is er een gevarieerde selectie van de verschillende kleuren gemaakt. Verder zijn ze allemaal gezond en doen hun werk vlijtig. Goede cleaning crew!
