15 Ramshorn Snail Pets/Feeders $11.75

Selling 15 Ramshorn Snails (random colors) $11.75

Ramshorn snails are a group of invertebrate snails commonly found in freshwater aquarium tanks.

ramshorn snails can be good tank cleaners. They eat algae and dead or dying plants generally, so they can be useful. In warm climates (such as those in mainland Australia or the southern United States) they much prefer ponds, especially outdoor ponds. Algae, dead leaves that sink to the bottom, mulm and dead animals can be a problem, as they foul the water. Ramshorn snails eat all of these things.

Alternative names

Red Ramshorn, Brown Ramshorn, Wheel Snails, Ear Snails.


They are hermaphrodites. This means that they have both sexual organs. As a result, they can breed with any other snail, making the process quick. In other words, if you have two Ramshorn snails, they can mate.

A ramshorn will normally start reproducing within 4 weeks of being born if well fed. It lays a small gelatin like patch of eggs on any surface. After 10-20 days (depending on temperature) these will hatch. The babies of red ramshorn are very tiny but identical to their parents. They will be able to find their own food in the tank. will eat algae, detritus, and parboiled or raw vegetables. They will eat catfish wafers and fish flakes if fed correctly.

This snail is a slow roamer and will explore all over the aquarium, keeping under the water. The snail can not control its own internal temperature, so if it is kept at the higher temperature it will move around more quickly, but will have a shorter life span of about a year. This snail does not have gills, and must occasionally come up to the surface to breathe air; therefore, it can often be seen attached to the underside of the surface of the water.
It has been noticed that these snails prefer to sit upon black or dark surfaces. They often clump together on the glass sealant if it is black or on a internal filter.

They can also be an indicator of water quality. A number of the snails climbing out of the water is a good indication of excess ammonia or nitrite being present.
