We are pleased to inform you that we have received a beautiful consignment of tiger tower snails – another Viviparidae species. It is the first time that we have these snails – they are live-bearing, peaceful, plant-safe snails that love powdered food and soft algae paste. They are best housed with other peaceful inhabitants like vampire shrimps, clams, neocaridina shrimps.
They grow to a maximum of 4cm and are most commonly found in the aquarium trade at anything between 1.5 and 3 cm.
Take a look at some of the pictures below and check them out at the shop here: Tiger Tower Snails.
We have received a very limited but beautiful selection of Brotia snails. These peaceful live-bearing snails are some of the larger snails that you can have in a freshwater tank (their full size may exceed 7cm). Both species are considered to be plant-safe and are a treat to the eye! 🙂
The White Cloud Mountain minnow (Tanichthys albonubes) is a hardy species of freshwater fish and coldwater fish often kept in an aquarium.
The species is a member of the carp family (family Cyprinidae) of the order Cypriniformes native to China.
The White Cloud Mountain minnow is practically extinct in its native habitat, due to pollution and tourism. It was believed to be extinct for over 20 years in 1980, but an apparently native population of this fish was discovered on Hainan Island, well away from the White Cloud Mountain.
They are bred in farms and are easily available through the aquarium trade.
White cloud mountain minnows should be kept in good-sized schools, preferably of a half dozen or more. When kept singly, they tend to lose color and hide most of the time. They are peaceful and fit well with other small peaceful fish.
Avoid larger tankmates, as they will be inclined to eat white cloud mountain minnows. The same is true of any aggressive species.
When kept in the right temperature range, this species of fish is very hardy and well suited for the beginner hobbyist. Although undemanding when it comes to water quality, this minnow does not deal with heat well. There is evidence that keeping white cloud mountain minnows in water that is constantly above 72 F (22 C) will shorten their lifespan.
