  • Unique Behavior: Known for their fascinating climbing ability and the habit of occasionally coming to the surface to breathe air.

Care Instructions:

  • Tank Size: A minimum of 10 gallons is recommended for housing Apple Snails.
  • Water Parameters: Maintain a pH level between 6.5 and 8.0, and a temperature range of 70-80°F (21-27°C).
  • Substrate: Preferably a sandy or fine gravel substrate to prevent damage to their delicate bodies.
  • Feeding: Provide a balanced diet of algae wafers, blanched vegetables (such as zucchini, spinach, and lettuce), and specially formulated snail pellets.
  • Water Quality: Regular water changes and a good filtration system are essential to keep the water clean and free from pollutants.
  • Tank Mates: Ideal tank mates include peaceful fish species like tetras, guppies, and livebearers. Avoid housing them with aggressive fish that may harm the snails.
  • Breeding: Apple Snails are prolific breeders. If breeding is not desired, keep the water line low to prevent them from laying eggs above the water surface.

Additional Tips:

  • Avoid Copper: Copper is toxic to snails, so avoid using medications or water conditioners containing copper.
  • Cover the Tank: Apple Snails are known escape artists. Ensure your tank has a secure lid to prevent them from climbing out.
