Nice collection of snail you have there....

And is that water spider?


BTW you are not putting Antoneme helena together with other snail are you?

hi,

I don`t think the fifth is a thiara winteri, I have never seen one with spikes so it does look more like a snail that needs brackish water.

the tylos need higher temp. than the others, do you keep them in different tanks?


the spider is really interesting, can you post more details about it?

Hi,

I keep them in different tanks.
The fifth is a Thiara cancellata
In my opinion Thiara winteri is ugly.(I have both thiara snails)

The spider is found in ponds in the palaearctic region, which includes Europe, northern Asia, and Africa north of the Sahara desert. It lives for approximately two years. It is velvet-grey, although the trapped air around its body gives it a silvery appearance. Unusual for spiders, the males (9 - 12 mm) of this species are often larger than the females (8 - 15 mm).
