Rabbit Snails are a rare type of snail that have a long, droopy antennae alongside a long rabbit-like face. These peaceful slow-moving freshwater snails are beautiful and curious. 100% a nice addition to your aquarium and suitable for all community tanks.
Shells are always cone-shaped with a recurring grooved spiral pattern.
Rabbit snails do well in both sand and gravel substrates.
Their preferred tank mates include Tetras, Dwarf chain and Zebra loaches as well as other algae eaters like SAE & Otocinclus. Rabbit snails are perfect tankmates with most shrimp species, especially Sulawesi shrimp.
Rabbit snails are scavengers and will eat algae, fresh greens from the garden, Lettuce, broccoli, peas, spinach, cucumbers as well as flake foods, algae wafers. If a shell is cracked, leave it alone, it can repair itself. It’ll gradually regenerate, just like a broken finger nail.
Rabbit snails breed slowly relative to other snails producing just one (1) live offspring at a time carrying a single eggs in a pouch for about 6 weeks. Momma will birth out a small pearl bubble which the baby hatches shortly thereafter. Breeding only takes place after they are about 1.5 inches in length. Male and female rabbit snails are identical, yet the two genders are present. You’ll need a minimum of 4-8 snails to have good chance of any potential breeding process which can take some time and correct diet to catalyze the breeding process.
