Ivory predatory snail - Clea helena (Anentome helena)
The wonderfully pretty black and yellow striped predatory snail has got competition. The delicate creamy white shell of the ivory snail is incredibly attractive and looks really noble. Especially in classically restrained aquascapes, this snail therefore cuts a really good figure. Besides "beautiful", the Ivory Predatory Snail can also be "useful": it eats snails of all kinds and helps to quickly eliminate snail plagues in the aquarium. As a purely functional animal, this beautiful and fascinating snail is actually almost too bad! - Garnelio
Description

The Ivory Predatory Snail is a brand new color form of the Predatory Snail Clea helena, also still known by its old name Anentome helena, which originally came to us from Indonesia and Thailand. It has the beautiful up to 3 cm long ribbed tower-shaped shell of the robber snail, but it lacks the yellow-black stripes. Due to the ivory color the structures of the shell stand out beautifully. In the front you can see the characteristic notch through which the ivory predatory snail stretches its proboscis upwards. This is a healthy strain of German offspring, which has been purely bred for 3 years and now produces 95% ivory colored offspring.

As the name suggests, the ivory predatory snail is characterized by its predatory way of life, it eats mainly snails, but does not say no to other protein-containing food. If the snails in the aquarium are decimated, Clea helena can also be fed with protein food. If the ivory snail eats a snail, it proceeds as follows: It first stuns the captured snail with venom, which it injects through one of its proboscises. This venom not only stuns, but also dissolves the snail's tissue. The ivory predatory snail then uses a second proboscis to suck out its victim. Easy-to-hunt snails without lids are preferred, but snails with lids are also caught. Even large snails like racing snails are among their prey. One hears even now and then reports that Clea helena goes also to shrimps - certainly not the rule, but it can occur already once. With fish the socialization works very well, crabs and shrimps crack and eat the ivory raptor snail like any other snail.

Ivory predatory snails are separately sexual, but males and females unfortunately cannot be distinguished from each other by external characteristics. After the mating act, female ivory predatory snails lay their square egg cocoons on smooth surfaces such as plants, wood and stones, the discs or equipment. The egg cocoons have a characteristic pillow shape and each contains only one egg recognizable as a bright spot. After about two weeks, the approximately 1 mm long juvenile snail hatches and initially hides in the substrate, where it feeds on microorganisms. When it has grown a bit, it comes out into the open more and more often. The ivory snail inherits its beautiful shell coloration to about 95%. If you want to breed the color form purely, we recommend to sort out other colored offspring and to pass them on or to give the animals an extra tank.

The Ivory Snail prefers water with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH value from 7 and higher as well as medium hard to hard water.

Our food recommendation: With the Natureholic Snail Feed Power Paste you create a feeding lawn that is very well accepted by all aufwuchs feeding snails. Also delicate wild-caught snails such as racing snails or staghorn snails, which are stressed after transport and do not go to conventional food, can be well fed up with it.

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.

Actively prevent outbreaks: With the invisible Natureholic Snail Barrier you prevent the escape and loss of your snails from the aquarium.

Question: "Wie schnell vermehren sich die Raubschnecken bräuchte sie da ich eine Schnecken Plage in meinem 60l Aquarium habe wie viel Raubschnecken würden sie mir empfehlen möchte auch nicht eine zweite Schnecken Plage . Lg Kellner"

Hallo Sabrina, vielen Dank für deine Frage! In einem 60 Liter Becken reichen in der Regel 10 Raubschnecken für den Anfang. Hast du eine starke Schneckenplage dämmen Raubschnecken dies aber nur bedingt ein, da sie auch an Futterreste gehen. Raubschnecken sind eine super Hilfe aber auch die verfügbare Futtermenge sollte reduziert werden um einer Schneckenplage Herr zu werden.

Question: "Hallo, vertragen sich die Schnecken mit cherax pulcher? Und wie groß werden sie? Mfg "

Hallo Andreas, vielen Dank für deine Frage! Die Schnecken werden etwa 2,5cm groß, sie vertragen sich mit Krebsen.
