Would People Be Interested?


I recently got a black ramshorn snail, which eventually turned to 10, then 20, and now I have several. I've decided to breed them for hobby and I have a gourami that eats them as well. They are colors such as black, leopard, and a very light brown.. If I decided to raise these, would people be interested, or are they to common? Thanks!

Never seen black ones. Do you have pictures? Where did you get them from?

If black ramshorns aren't common, then I'm sure that's not what it is then, maybe its just a really dark brown. I'm sure I don't have anything rare.. haha. I got it from my friends tank because I wanted a snail for my tank.. Then it turned into a hobby(: Sorry for the mistake(:

take pictures! black is just a color, as far as i know there aren't any sub-species of ramshorns people try to have :P with snails, especially ramshorns, colors just happen because they breed sooo much and so all the genes get a chance to show themselves :P

Do their shells stand up or lay flat? If they lay down flat they are pest snails. The shells have the same look just one is upright and one isn't.

I have some golden ones in my tanks but I've never seen black ones. I'd love to see a picture.

I just recently started breeding them, not completely familiar of the colors yet.. But I'm getting there.. The purple one is beautiful! What did you breed to get white with pink body?
