Malaysian Trumpet Snails
Malaysian Trumpet Snails are species of tropical freshwater snails, and as they are very adaptive, they are found in Asia, Africa, Turkey, and in other places around the world. Malaysian Trumpet Snails have long shells that look like ice-cream cones. These snails are born very small and can grow up to the size of an inch. Usually, female snails are a bit larger than the male ones. The color of the shells varies from grey to brown and can also have some patterns. These snails like many other snails are very peaceful, they spend most of their type at the bottom of the tank digging substrate to find the food especially during the light time and when the lights go off they come up. But from time to time they show activity as well, especially during the time of feeding.
