Product information
Red staghorn snail - Clithon flavovirens
The pretty orange to reddish red Clithon corona is a real eye-catcher in the aquarium, and its eager feeding activity on the aquarium glass ensures that you can actually see it. It keeps the aquarium glass clean and also takes care of algae deposits and other growth in the rest of the tank. Since it cannot reproduce in the aquarium, you do not have to expect a snail plague despite a neatly laid table. - Garnelio
Description

From the antler snail, also horn snail or sun sn ail Clithon flavovirens from Southeast Asia there is also a reddish-orange variant. It grows up to 2 cm and sometimes has a fine or even larger black or gray pattern. If the water values change, this pattern can also change. The namesake horns are very characteristic of this snail. This species of snail is not a hermaphrodite, which means that there are males and females - although they cannot be distinguished from each other by external characteristics.

Female staghorn snails place small beige egg cocoons on hard surfaces. They do not hatch into fully developed young snails, but into larvae. In nature, these so-called veligers are carried with the current into the sea, where they develop and grow into snails, which then migrate back into the freshwater areas of streams where they live. Theselarvae cannot survive in the aquarium , Clithon flavovirens has not yet been bred in captivity.

Staghorn snails have a tremendous appetite for algal cover and other growth, and they graze on the glass, rocks, wood, aquarium decorations, and plant leaves all day long. Healthy plants are not eaten. When snails are new to the aquarium, they often refuse artificial food. If there are not enough algae coverings and brown autumn leaves in the aquarium then, they are threatened with starvation. Therefore, this staghorn snail is not suitable for freshly established aquariums. Especially for these snails a special food which can prevent this danger.

The red sun snail can be socialized with all kinds of aquarium animals - as long as they do not eat snails! Crayfish, crabs, predatory snails and snail-eating fish are of course not good aquarium companions for them! Due to the special shape of its shell it is well protected from curious fish and also shrimps.

The red sun snail likes a pH of over 6.5 and prefers a KH of over 3. If it is kept in softer water, food containing calcium should definitely be given.

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.

Sie sollten bald wieder vorrätig sein, du kannst sie dir aber auch solange auf deiner Merkliste abspeichern, damit du sie nächstes Mal schneller wieder findest. Liebe Grüße, Kevin

Question: "Hallo Wollte mal fragen ob ich die 2 schnecken trotzdem bekommen könnte auch wenn erst ab 3 verkauft werden. Ich habe schon 10 geweihschnecken (4 verschiedene Farben) und da würden sie super dazu passen. Mfg Tobias "

Damit du bei uns immer zum besten Preis kaufen kannst und da die meisten Tiere in Gruppen gepflegt werden sollten, bieten wir sie wie angegeben an, ein Aussuchen ist daher leider nicht möglich. Liebe Grüße, Kevin

Question: "Hallo, ich habe 4 von diesen Schnecken und finde das natureholic schneckenfeed unangenehm vom Geruch und der Anwendung her. Nun frage ich mich ob ich die Schnecken stattdessen dauerhaft mit natureholic garnelen babyfeed füttern kann?"

Schnecken und Garnlen unterscheiden sich hinsichtlich ihres Mineral- und Nährstoffbedarfes, daher solltest du die Tiere ihrer Bedürfnisse entsprechend füttern. Alternativ zur Schneckenpaste könntest du unseren Schneckendünger verwenden.


Liebe Grüße, Kevin
