unknown snail please someone help me to ID it.
« on: April 25, 2012, 01:45:41 PM »

They aren't the best pictures but if someone could please tell me what type of snail this guy is please I would very much appreciate it. I have been searching everywhere since I found it. I don't know if it has any special dietry requirements, whether it is dangerous to my fish or my other snails. Aswell as its shell shape he has a red body.

Vic, I don't think any snails are dangerous to fish. The only way I know of them to be a danger is if they are carrying parasites/diseases and the only way for them to get those usually, is if they've been in an out door environment and come into contact with birds or other animals that are like snails, vectors for diseases.
So he should be fine if the fish haven't been sick at all.

Some snails have some unusual colourations, there's a ramshorn snail colouration type where it's completely red!

Yeah I saw them whilst I was trying to find out what this one was. Lol! It is defiantly not a ramshorn, I just can't find it anywhere and no one seems to be able to tell me what it is.

I had those red ones! Grin Really beautiful and fun to watch, but it's not too much fun finding all the aquarium equipment covered in their eggs |:

That's what I though and I know what one of those are I have three already. I just want to know what this one is. I don't know if it has any special dietary requirements, how big it grows or anything. I have it posted in three places and no one seems to be able to help me.

Vic most snails will happily eat anything Smiley

I often feed mine blanched peas/brocolli, or crushed fish flakes, sometimes I chuck a holiday block in there for them  Smiley
