General Information

Blue Ramhorn snails are a color varient of the common brown ramhorn snail. They do not eat plants and will help eat any excess food, dead plants, and small amounts of algae.

Ramshorn Snails are egg layers and lay their eggs in translucent egg masses on the glass or other objects in the aquarium. The egg masses usually contain about a dozen eggs or so. It is possible to actually see developing snails in the egg mass, which are a clearish white color. Ramhorn's are hermaphroditic and if they are overfed they can become a pest.


As their name implies Blue Ramhorn snails have shells that are shaped like a ram's hornand in blue in color. When they are born their shells are thin and so they appear darker in color because thier body color shows through the shell. As they age their shell gets thicker and they take on a lighter blue color.
