Behavior in the aquarium
Filopaludina martensiis is a naturally calm, non-aggressive snail species. Imperturbable, he will move through the aquarium in search of food. He can also rest for long periods and then lies still. He usually seeks shelter for this under plants or stones. It does not get in the way of other inhabitants and can therefore be kept in various tropical aquariums.
Like many snails, it prefers somewhat harder, slightly alkaline water. Soft, acidic water will have a bad effect on their home. A lack of calcium can cause cracks in the house or become rough. Also avoid fluctuations in the water as much as possible. Good water parameters are a pH of 6-8 and a hardness of 5-20 dGH. An optimum temperature is between 20-26°C. Oxygenated water with a little exercise is appreciated.
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. In addition, he can also keep leaves of, for example, Anubias free of deposits, keep windows clean, etc. Calcium rich food is recommended for good development of the house. You can also add cooked vegetables.
Filopaludina martensi is viviparous. The young develop in a kind of brood chamber.
