Product information
Orange rock snail - Orange Tylomelania
In our opinion the most beautiful of the Sulawesi snails is the Orange Poso Snail, also called Orange Rock Snail or Orange Tylomelania. Their colors are just great, and in the aquarium it is a real eye-catcher. This beautiful snail is relatively easy to keep and also to breed. It is not demanding when it comes to food and has proven to be very persistent in the aquarium. - Garnelio
Description

The unusual screw shape and the special sculpting of the dark brown, almost black snail shell in combination with the bright yellow to orange body is what makes the Orange Tylomelania, also called Poso Snail or Rock Sn ail, a real eye-catcher. The shell grows up to 6 centimeters long. This beautiful snail originates from Lake Poso on Sulawesi, where the animals live mainly on hard substrate. However, they can also be found on mud.

The Orange Tylomelania is a very peaceful species that can easily be kept with other peaceful snails, fish and shrimp. It feeds on algae and biofilms, thus ensuring good water quality in the aquarium. However, it also eats vegetables, food tablets and flake food. Brown autumn leaves should always be present in the aquarium for the Orange Tylomelania.

The breeding of the Orange Tylomelania is very easy. If the water values are correct and the animals are well fed, the snails reproduce practically by themselves. Since the Tylomelania sp. "orange" is separately sexual, males and females are needed for this unlike other snail species. Since it is not possible to distinguish the sexes in live Orange Tylomelania, we recommend keeping a group of at least five animals to increase the probability of having both sexes in the aquarium. Unusually, the Orange Rock Snail does not lay eggs, but releases a single small juvenile snail every few weeks, so it is live-bearing.

Although it originates from Lake Poso with its rather special water values, the Orange Tylomelania tolerates a much wider range of water values than the shrimps from there. The pH should be above 7.5, and the Orange Rock Snail prefers medium to hard water and tolerates a temperature of 22 to 30 °C. With its short foot it has a rather hard time on gravel, it is often found on hard substrate like stones, also in the aquarium. It does not usually go strong on healthy plants.

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 fed up well with it.

Our plant recommendation: Use for the 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.

Hallo Veronika, vielen Dank für deine Frage! Wir empfehlen die Tiere wie Fische auch langsam an Temperatur und Wasserwerte anzugleichen. 

Question: "Hallo, an was kann es liegen, dass das Gehäuse meiner Schnecke etwas kaputt geht? "

from Kevin (Garnelio)
Reply
from Kevin (Garnelio)

Hallo Tanja, vielen Dank für deine Frage! Meist ist dies auf Mineralmangel zurückzuführen. Bei Tylomelania ist das gerade an den Gehäusespitzen normal und für die Schnecke nicht gefährlich. Wer perfekte Gehäuse will sollte aber Mineralsteine und Futter für die Tiere parat haben.
