Clithon corona (Antler snail)

Clithon sowerbyana (variegated antler snail) are small snails with protuberances on their shells. They are yellow with black striped snails. Snails supplied by us are still small and have a size of 0.5-1 cm, but they can grow to approximately 2 cm.

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

Water quality
Clithon corona (Antler Snail) prefers somewhat harder, slightly alkaline water with a GH of at least 5°dH and pH of at least 7. Soft, acidic water will have a bad effect on their house. Also keep in mind that snails are sensitive to dissolved metals and chemical compounds. If medication is used in the water, transfer the snails to another aquarium as a precaution.

Power supply
In the aquarium they will feed on all kinds of plant material (algae, dead plant remains, etc.), but dead animals will also be eaten. Healthy plants are left alone. Excess fish food from flakes and food tablets is also eaten. They are real cleaners. They will look for food in every corner of the aquarium. The window is also regularly grazed clean, which makes these animals a great help in aquarium maintenance. The aquarium should not be too clean for the snails, but preferably always have a pile of dirt somewhere where they can forage.

Type of aquarium
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 freshwater, they require brackish water. They do like to sneak above the water, which also allows them to climb over the edge. In an open aquarium, regularly check for fugitive snails or preferably use a closed aquarium. Provide enough hiding places and they can live for just a few years.

Clithon corona are nice little snails for the aquarium and will help with maintenance!
