Tylomelania is a genus of freshwater snails which have an operculum, aquatic gastropod mollusks in the family Pachychilidae. In the aquarium hobby, snails from this genus are commonly known as "Giant Rabbit Snail", "Elephant Snail" or "Sulawesi Snail". A sister group of Tylomelania is genus Pseudopotamis.
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. They are considered as Giant Aquatic Snail since they grow much bigger than the regular aquatic snails. Shells Growth: 0.8-4.7" / 2cm-12cm.
Sulawesi Snails eat invertebrate pellets, flake foods, algae, waste and cooked vegetables such as carrot, zucchini, kale, spinach, or cucumber.
Orange/Yellow Sulawesi Snails are collected from a wild source. Therefore it is very normal for shells to have some defects. Ship in adult sizes, approx. 1 ~ 2 inches.
