Behavior in the aquarium
The Faunus sp. cappuccino is a nice resident for the aquarium and attracts attention. It also comes into its own in a shrimp aquarium. Faunus sp. cappuccino is non-stop cleaning up uneaten fish food, dead or dying plant residues, dirt residues or algae growth on hard surfaces. These snails are fairly easy to care for and mainly stay at the bottom.
Like many snails, 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 6.5-8 and a hardness of 10-25 dGH. An optimal temperature is between 22-28°C.
In the aquarium they will feed on all kinds of plant material (algae, dead plant remains, etc.). Excess fish food from flakes and food tablets is also eaten. They are real cleaners. Calcium rich food is recommended for a good development of the house. You can also add cooked vegetables.
Faunus sp. cappuccino is viviparous, but do not reproduce in the aquarium. This requires brackish water.
