Leopard Ramshorn Snails

18 posts in this topic

Probably my favorite variation of ramshorns is the blue leopard, but the brown leopard is also cute.  I sue to have them a few years ago in my 3g bubble bowl, but don't' see many these days in my various tanks.

Anyone else kept/keeping Leonard ramshorns?

 

I enjoy them for their look and they make a  great clean up crew.

Super cool!

I had leopard ramshorns years ago, now I only have pink ramshnorn snails.  I've been looking for pure blue ones, have you ever kept those?

Your photos are great.  Are the leopards kept in a plant only tank?

I mostly have browns now, and a few of them are leopard but they're so dark its hard to tell (spoted(haha) a few when plucking out snails from a different tank for the dwarf puffer's meal).

Thanks ^^ I've, not had a blue shell with blue flesh, just blue with pink, they were the rarer ones.

These were in a planted 3g bubble bowl with cherry shrimp.

Here we go this was taken the same week as the shorts above.  Blyxa j., micro sword, and a plant in the front that eventually took over.  It was mis-sold to em as pygmy chain sword but I don't know what it really was.

Very pretty! I've had a few ramshorns hitch hike on plants and I've thought they were lovely, but they're never really for sale since they're a pest here.

The chain sword is helanthium tenellum (erroneously known as echinodorus tenellus).

Thanks, i was unsure if it was a mis-IDed sag or a non pygmy chain sword.

 

Super nice snail bowl, thanks for posting!

Thanks and you're welcome ^^

That bowl is beautiful!  So simple. 

 

I have a very nice large glass bowl - maybe 2 1/2 gallons?  (I really should just pour in some water and measure it.)  Purchased for three dollars at the local thrift store - in perfect shape and the optics are great.   Anyway, I'd love to do something like that - either a tiny shrimp or a snail in a little forest of plants. 

 

I follow Rachel O'Leary's channel, but with no experience in other aquatics, I know very little of how to go about it.

Thank you ^^  Eventually the chain sword took over and completely dominated it (after shrimp moved l out and a betta moved in)

Great deal on the bowl!! i got my at Michels for I think $15 with a coupon.  its between 2.5-3gs but I usually just call it a 3g

Well if you'd like me to brain dump on you all I've learned from shrimp keepings and small planted tanks I can.  Snail(s) are easier to keep but they have a lot more poop than shrimp.

 

Wow those snails are so pretty :D I love snails but haven't kept leopard ramshorns

^^ I enjoy snails too! Especially the leopards.. not so much the mini ramshorns (they breed like no ones business and are too tiny to notice any markings on).

She bought a mystery snail, its a larger species of snail than the ramshorn.I don't know much about mystery snail color patterns but I don't believe their is a spotted/leopard pattern in that species.  The blue mystery snail is very lovely though.

Ahh, I read it wrong.  And that's right, there are no mystery snails that are leopard spotted.  I was thinking about blue Ramshorn snails, or the blue leopard Ramshorn.
