Product information
Orange Track racing snail - Vittina semiconica
This beautiful snail not only looks great, it is also incredibly useful in the aquarium, because it feeds to a large extent on algae deposits and thus ensures that the panes remain sparkling clean and the furnishings do not turn green. It does not eat plants. The Orange Track racing snail can cope with a wide range of water values and will also live a very long time in the aquarium if fed correctly. Once it is acclimated, it is extremely hardy. - Garnelio
Description

The Orange Track Snail (Vittinasemiconica) lives in lower reaches and estuaries of the Indo-Pacific in fresh and brackish water. At up to 3 cm, it grows quite large for a barge snail, and its pattern on the orange to reddish brown shell is beautiful. It consists of up to three black, interrupted bands, sometimes still underlaid with yellow. The pattern can change when moving to other water values. The sexes can not be distinguished externally, the racing snail is nevertheless bisexual, so no hermaphrodite.

One aspect that makes the Orange Track racing snail very popular is the fact that it does not reproduce in the aquarium and therefore cannot cause a population explosion. Although females lay egg cocoons containing up to 50 eggs, they hatch into veliger larvae, which in nature drift into the sea and grow before returning to estuaries as finished snails. 

As distinctly peaceful animals, Orange Track racing snails can be socialized with virtually all other aquarium animals that do not eat snails. Even curious fish such as guppies have no chance of tugging at the snail's antennae or body with this shell shape.

As an algae eater the Orange Track Snail is very popular among aquarists. It not only takes care of algae deposits on leaves and decoration, but also keeps the aquarium glass immaculately clean. This is a very desirable characteristic, especially for aquascapes. Since these animals are wild-caught and cannot yet be bred in captivity, it must be kept in mind that they are not yet accustomed to supplemental food and will not find sufficient algae growth in very freshly set up aquariums. To prevent the animals from starving to death, one should in such cases use a special snail food feed. This snail does not attack plants.

Since the animals are exposed to large natural fluctuations in water values in nature, they can also cope with a variety of different values in the aquarium. Only the water should not be too acidic, the pH should be above 6.5.

From time to time the animals leave the water, a tightly closing lid is therefore a must, alternatively our snail barrier is used.

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 Marcel, vielen Dank für deine Frage! Es ist für die Tiere sehr stressig wenn wir in die Becken greifen. Daher versuchen wir das so gut es geht zu minimieren. Daher haben wir uns dazu entschieden die Tiere in diesen Mindestbestellmengen anzubieten. Das gewährleistet, dass jeder Kunde gesunde & vitale Tiere erhält.

Question: "Hallo, kann man mehrere nur männliche Schnecken kaufen? Ich bekomme sonst die Eier nicht mehr von den Wurzeln."
