You get 5 snails for $3.00
These are cute Ramshorn snails that come in a variety of colors. They do breed pretty quickly, but as long as your don’t overfeed, they won’t take over your tank.
You will receive a random assortment of colors and they will be approximately the size of a pea.
Although Ramshorns can take care of themselves and clean up leftover food, they will do best if you make sure they get some food of their own to eat. Algae wafers and other sinking pellets will keep them happy, but Snello (snail jello) will ensure they grow nice healthy shells!.
They prefer aquariums with a pH between 7 and 8. Above 7 is ideal because acidic water can degrade the shells of snails.
The perfect temperature is between 70 and 80 F, although they can tolerate temperatures well outside of this range.
Ramshorns will grow to about the size of a penny. Although some may get even bigger than that!
The snails will be shipped priority mail with a 2-4 day arrival time. They are carefully wrapped in damp paper towels and then gently tucked into an Eco friendly bio-degradable container, which is placed inside the shipping box with plenty of padding. I won’t ship below freezing temperatures.
WINTER SHIPPING- During the cold months I include a heat pack so the shipping cost is raised from $9.00 to $11.50.
No plastic is included with my shipping and all the materials are re-usable or bio-degradable.
With every shipment I will include a few extra snails in case some don’t make it.
If for some reason the snails are dead on arrival, send me a message with a photo within two hours and I will issue either a partial or full refund depending on how many were DOA.
The snails may rest in their shells for a few days after arriving. Unless they stink they are not dead!
Please send me a message if you have any questions or concerns!
