The yellow/black Tylomelania comes from Lake Poso on the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia. Usually it has a dark brown shell that fades to light brown/beige towards the apex. Its body is usually yellow/black, yellowish or whitish/black.
Tylomelania spec. loves to dig in the mud, eating any dead plant parts it finds there. In addition, it should be fed with powdered food and all kinds of tablet food.
The Tylomelania spec. yellow/black are active snails and crawl around in the tank a lot, however, from time to time they will take a short break and rest. They can be kept together with shrimp and fish that do not predate on snails without any problems. Tylomelania spec. may grow up to a shell size of around 12 cm, and the females release one young snail now and then every 4 - 8 weeks.
In their natural habitat, the pH of the water is around 7.9 - 8.5, and temperatures are constantly above 26 °C. This makes this orange Tylomelania spec. an ideal companion for shrimp from the same region (like e.g. Freshwater Cardinal shrimp).

The housing of the snails show more or less "defects", or lighter housing damage. This is not an indication regarding lack of care or inadequate keeping conditions ... in the natural habitat almost all snails have such defects, whereby the snails have no problems whatsoever. In the aquarium, with good mineral supply, this can reduce a bit again.
