Neritina pulligera - German Helmet Snail

Neritina pulligera, or as we call it in Dutch the German helmet snail, Algae snail or Brown snail is a species of snail from South Africa. It also occurs in Taiwan. He owes his Dutch name to the shape and color. Reminiscent of a German helmet. In addition to gray, the house can also be dark brown. In the aquarium it grows to about 3cm.

Neritina pulligera will not be much loved for its appearance, which may be a bit dull. However, he is very popular as a cleaner. Without taking a break, all surfaces are professionally cleaned of the growth of algae and micro-organisms. There is probably no better window scraper than the Neritina pulligera. In addition, it is excellent to keep with other snails, fish and shrimps.

Care of Neritina pulligera

Correct water quality is very important for good care. Snails are quite sensitive to heavy metals. When the water is not good for them, they will crawl over the edge of the aquarium. A glass cover is a handy tool, but in the first place good water quality. It is important that the water is not too acidic and too soft. This can hinder the development of a sturdy house. Additional feeding is possible with all kinds of "algae tablets", "spirulina food" or "snail sticks" for the aquarium.

Extra attention

These snails are caught in the wild. Diseases and other undesirable matters may also be involved. It is recommended to keep the snails in quarantine first. Let them get used to the new aquarium water with the drip method. Place them with the opening down, as turning them over is very difficult, if not impossible, for them. They come in immature format.

Top slakken

Ik had in totaal 6 slakken besteld, 3 Neritina Pulligera en 3 Neritina Waigiensis. Ze waren in aparte, ruime containers verpakt, die wederom in een grote doos met veel beschermingsmateriaal zaten. De verpakking van de dieren is zeer professioneel en als je geen heel erg onbenullige bezorger hebt, zou er weinig mis kunnen gaan. Er zat ook een heat-pack in om de dieren warm te houden.
Alle Neritina Pulligera hebben de reis overleefd en zijn nu zeer actief in het aquarium.
