Care

Provide a variety of hiding places.  Shrimp will molt and prefer places to hide while their new body is tender.  Keep the molted shells in the tank as other shrimp will feed off it as a good source of calcium.  Unlike Caridina shrimp, Neocaridina are hardy and very easy to keep.  Always remove dead shrimp to minimize bacteria and infections.  Avoid heavy c02 injection.

Neritina variegated

Characteristics:

Max Size: 1.2″

Care Level: Easy

Behavior: Peaceful

Diet: Omnivore

Water Movement: Slow Moving

Parameters

Temperature: 68 - 78

PH: 6.5 - 8

dGH: 7-15

dKH: 2 - 12

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.
