Product information
Long-nosed snail - Stenomelania torulosa
The unusually long, pointed shell of Stenomelania torulosa is a real eye-catcher in the aquarium. This useful and pretty snail is well-suited to aquariums with a capacity of 20 l or more, where it reliably takes care of food remains and other accumulating detritus: dead plant debris, the excrement of other inhabitants, algae growth and so on. Since it digs, it keeps the substrate loose. It does not go to live plants. Because Stenomelania torulosa does not reproduce in freshwater aquariums, it is a good choice for aquarists who fear mass reproduction of snails in their tanks, but who still want to take advantage of the benefits of tower snails in the aquarium. - Garnelio
Description

Stenomelania torulosa, the long-nosed snail, comes like many other Thiaridae also from Southeast Asia, more precisely from Indonesia. Its shell is conspicuously pointed and has a very long backward extension. The color varies from light brown to dark brown, the tip of the shell is often white and shows small signs of wear. However, this does not harm the snail, the first circumferences are completely empty. The shell is finely sculptured and shows pretty, not very deep spiral grooves. Stenomelania torulosa becomes over 10 cm long in the aquarium. The namesake long nose immediately catches the eye. Which snail is a male and which is a female cannot be distinguished externally.

Stenomelania torulosa releases live larvae, but they need seawater to develop. Therefore, this beautiful snail cannot reproduce in the aquarium.

Stenomelania torulosa is very peaceful and also quite hardy when it comes to water values. It is happy with a pH above 6.8, a KH greater than 3 ° and a GH up to 22. The temperatures should be between 20 and 28 °C. The longnose snail can be well socialized with not too curious and too lively fish and with dwarf shrimps.

Stenomelania torulosa likes to eat food remains and all other organic remains in the aquarium. Brown autumn leaves are a good food supplement, and now and then it also eats vegetables (especially Hokkaido squash), greens and very gladly special snail food.

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 revolutionary Natureholic Snail Barrier you minimize in the simplest way the escape and the danger of injury of your snails from aquariums without cover. With just a finger swipe you apply the paste on the upper inner panes, snails will turn around at this invisible barrier and climb back into the aquarium.

Es kann sein, dass sie sich eingegraben haben, warte mal ab.

Question: "Ich habe vor kurzem 3 Schnecken bestellt und bekommen, 1 hat sich seit 2 Tagen eingegraben (inkl. ihrem Haus) und kommt nicht mehr aus dem Sand, muss ich da helfen? Oder kommt diese von selber wieder raus?"
