English name: Orange track snail, Polka dot snail
Scientific name: Vittina semiconica
Size male/female: about 2.5 cm or 1 inch
Water temperature: 20 - 27 °C or 68 - 81 °F
Water Parameters: pH 6.7 - 8.0
Breeding: needs brackish water
Black stripes or dots on a light brown to orange shell.
They are laying big white eggs wich are difficult to remove from the glass or other things in the tank. Breeding in freshwater is not possible.
These snails are harmless for healthy plants.
My experience on this species:
Sometimes they leave the water but that happens not as often as by other snails of this genus.
Seems to be a good choice for softer water. They eat algaes but also fish food and vegetables like cucumber.
Make sure that they cannot leave the tank. Otherwise they can die, because they cannot find the way back.
