Offering Giant Colombian Ramshorn Snail (Marisa cornuarietis).

The Giant Colombian Ramshorn Snail, Marisa cornuarietis, is a large freshwater snail local across North and South America. With a maximum shell size of approximately 50 mm – 2 inches, spiral in shape with vivid brown and gold coluring these snails prefer slow moving water where they will voraciously consume vegetation and animal waste, serving a useful purpose as scavengers. Entirely peaceful, these snails should be kept with tank inhabitants that won’t make a meal of them (cichlids especially!) Offering algae tablets or vegetables is a good way to distract them from consuming aquarium plants.
