Ramshorn snails are freshwater snails that are often kept in aquariums due to their peaceful nature and ability to help keep the tank clean by eating algae and detritus. Ramshorn snails are adaptable to a wide range of aquarium sizes, but it's important to provide them with plenty of hiding places such as rocks, plants, and driftwood. They also require a substrate that they can burrow into, such as gravel or sand. Ramshorn snails are generally peaceful and can be kept with other peaceful aquarium fish and invertebrates. However, they may be eaten by some fish species, so it's important to choose tankmates carefully. Ramshorn snails can reproduce quickly, and it's not uncommon to find clusters of small snails in the tank. If you want to control their population, you can remove the eggs or reduce feeding. Overall, ramshorn snails are easy to care for and can be a beneficial addition to an aquarium. It's important to maintain good water quality with regular water changes and to monitor the temperature and other water parameters to ensure the health and well-being of the snails.
