Product information
Golden basket shell - Corbicula sp.
This pretty little golden mussel has proven to be a comparatively very robust and persistent aquarium inhabitant, which can be kept very well especially in filterless aquariums. It can cope with a wide range of water values and temperatures and can even reproduce quite easily in the aquarium, because it does not need fish as hosts for its larvae. Nevertheless, one does not have to fear a mass reproduction. - Garnelio
Description

The rather roundish golden basket shell, scientifically called Corbicula sp. , impresses mainly by its small size and its golden yellow color. The Golden Cup Shell belongs to an as yet undetermined species of the genus Corbicula. It is often offered as Corbicula javanicus, but this is not a valid species name.

Originally it comes from Asia, but in the meantime this very adaptable genus of basket shells is also widespread in Europe. Since it reaches only 3 cm in diameter, you can already keep a group of five basket shells in sand aquariums from 40 cm edge length without any problems. 

Breeding of the golden basket shell in freshwater should be possible, but mass reproduction in the aquarium is not to be expected. There are hermaphrodites as well as males and females in the genus Corbicula.

Corbicula sp. filters planktonic food from the aquarium water. Therefore, the aquarium should not be too clean and have a nice current, but also low-flow zones. The basket shell will find a favorable place for itself. Filterless aquariums with a flow pump are very suitable for keeping the golden basket mussel, filtered tanks are usually too clean in such aquariums should be fed with Natureholic mussel feed. Mussels like to burrow a bit, so the Golden Cup Mussel is very grateful for an aquarium with sand or fine gravel. As food we recommend the microfine dust food from Natureholic, which is specially tailored to the needs of mussels. Optimally, one should feed the mussel aquarium once or twice a day according to the instructions on the package. The best way to feed this dust food is with a pipette. During and after feeding the filter should be switched off, so that the food really reaches the mussel and does not end up in the filter.

You should keep at least 5 Golden Cup Mussels in a group. A socialization with small fish like guppies, mollies & Co. is possible without problems, the socialization with snails, dwarf shrimps and especially with fan shrimps works with the Golden Cup Shell without problems.

Our plant recommendation: Use for planting NatureHolic InVitros. These are free of snails, planarians and other unwanted co-inhabitants. Also free of algae spores, bacteria and fungi.

Expert Tip: We recommend for fish keeping the NatureHolic 3 Phase Liquid. The care set offers the best all-round protection for your animals. It ensures optimal conditions for successful breeding and keeping.

Waren je nur muscheln aber die sind gesund und munter alle angekommen und haben sich gut eingelebt. Ich bin mit der online bestellung von fischen im allgemeinen sehr zu frieden was beim kauf in geschäften eher nicht so ist, da habe ich oft kranke tiere bekommen und das ist online noch nie passiert. Ausserdem bekomme ich online auch raritäten, so wie garnelio sie auch anbietet und das finde ich super, da käme ich sonst nicht drann.

Hallo Flower, vielen Dank fuer deine Frage! Ja die Muscheln koennen so gepflegt werden. Es besteht allerdings ein sehr geringes Risiko, dass der CPO geschickt genug ist, eine Muschel zu oefnen und erbeuten.
