I cant see very clearly but they look like pond /bladder snails. Their shells grow with them, they clean up left over food so they dont really need special food for them. But if you over feed they multiply pretty quickly and can become a problem, a few people dont like them as you can end up with too many
They are 1 kind off snail I wont keep.

I got them for free . What happen if they eat to much and what will be the problem?

Major pest snail. If overfed theyll run rampant. Send them to my puffer processing plant.

Yep! They multiply like crazy, you'll end up with loads.

Ok thinks I guess Iíll throw them away . Are they healthy to feed my arowana

shellyx 06-14-2019 06:24 PM

Yep you can feed them to your arowana, I feed mine to my elephant nose fish.
