Orange Rabbit Snail (Tylomelania gemmifera ‘orange’)


One of the most colorful of the many varieties of so-called Rabbit Snails native to Sulawesi, the Orange Rabbit snail is found in the warm shoreline regions of lake Poso. An omnivore that primarily grazes on algae and biofilm in the wild, they will readily accept a variety of prepared foods in the aquarium. Their native habitat is characterized by warm, clear, slightly hard water and they will do best when kept in similar conditions. Like all members of the genus Tylomelania, these snails reproduce slowly, producing only a few eggs at a time which hatch quickly into fully-formed baby snails.
