Default Rabbit snails

Anyone keeping Tylomelania sp snails?

I've dedicated a large amount of my time I have for the hobby to keep these guys
Beautiful snails that are extremely active

Here are some pictures of some babies I recently collected out of the main aquarium I keep the adults in

Please feel free to share what you have

Hey

No these guys are nothing like ramhorns. Ramhorns infest my canisters lol but people like the blue colour so I keep them around

Tylos might throw 1 baby every month or so. They are dioecious so you need a group to be able to get lucky enough to have a male and female. They're also sexually monomorphic.

I've become obsessed especially since I've been getting some real oddball babies

Bonus is they're amazing scavengers and like to burrow

Sorry that I dont have anything to add. just curious as I have never kept anything more difficult than MTs and ramshorns as far as snails go. What kind of water do these guys need?

No problem
I'm happy to answer questions

High ph 8.2

I also dose the aquarium with calcium chloride every other day or heavily after a water change. I try to keep the water very clean because they can be very sensitive to poor conditions

Only thing I hate is most are wild caught. Majority of the time the adults have some beat up shells

Definitely the coolest snails I currently have

I'm always searching for new types to buy
