Behavior in the aquarium
The Thiara scabra is a nice resident for almost every community aquarium. It also comes into its own in a shrimp aquarium. Thiara scabra does an excellent job when it comes to cleaning up uneaten fish food, debris and detritus. They will often occupy themselves in the substrate. By digging into the soil, the substrate is supplied with oxygen. Fine sand or gravel is preferred for this. The soil is also fertilized as a result and these snails are an addition to the biological balance. As a disadvantage, the bottom layer will become flat, making them not ideal in aquascapes with sandy paths or slopes. They are fairly small in size and can therefore be kept in a 20L aquarium.

Water quality
Thiara scabra has few special requirements for the water parameters. It prefers somewhat harder, slightly alkaline water. Soft, acidic water will have a bad effect on their home. Also avoid fluctuations in the water as much as possible. Good water parameters are a pH of 7.0-8.5 and a hardness of 10-20 dGH. An optimal temperature is between 22-27°C.

Nutrition
In the aquarium, these tower snails will feed on all kinds of food remains. Excess fish food and food tablets are eaten. They are real cleaners. They will look for food in all corners of the aquarium. The search is mainly done in the soil layer, so that these animals prove to be a great help in keeping the soil airy. Calcium rich food is recommended for a good development of the house.

Extra information
This species is a prolific viviparous snail. In good conditions, many offspring can arise. They are especially active at dusk and at night.

Thiara scabrai are useful snails that are easy to keep!
