Notes

Stability is key.  Caridina shrimp are very sensitive to water changes prefer softer and acid waters.  Keep cooler water temperatures and avoid heavy c02 injection.  Minimize changes.

Max Size: 1.2″

Behavior: Peaceful

Diet: Omnivore

Water Movement: Slow Moving

Parameters

Temperature: 68 - 78

PH: 6.5 - 8

Tank Size: 2 per 10 gal

Tank Mates

Neocaridina and Cardina Shrimp, Tetras, Rasboras, Danios, Corydoras, Otocinclus and most small nano fish.  Loaches and mollies may nip at snails.  Pufferfish will eat them if they're small enough.

Notes

Snails are detritivores.  They feed on dead organic material, especially plant detritus in an aquarium.  This helps to clean up and break down organics in the tank, such as dying plant leaves, algae, left over fish food and even deceased animals.

Their shells require minerals and nutrients like calcium so a more neutral to alkaline water parameter is preferred.
