Brotia Costula commonly knows as Horn, Thorn Pagoda Snail or Porcupine Snail. These snails originally from the Moei River in Thailand. Pagoda means a tower with a tiered structure. 
They thrive in a well maintained planted aquarium, fast water flow, high oxygen tank with a high GH level. They tend to hide at first, but when they adapt to the aquarium, they will become more active. Make sure to provide high water flow and dark area for them to hide. 

Pagoda Snails eat invertebrate pellets, flake foods, algae, waste and cooked vegetables such as carrot, zucchini, kale, spinach, or cucumber.
