The Ninja Star Snail, scientifically known as Neritina natalensis, is a fascinating and beneficial addition to any aquarium. These small, freshwater snails are widely sought after for their unique appearance and useful algae-eating habits.


The Ninja Star Snail features a distinct shell shape resembling a star, with intricate patterns and colors that range from shades of brown to black. Their shell's design adds a touch of elegance and intrigue to your aquarium's aesthetics.


With a moderate care level, Ninja Star Snails are relatively easy to maintain. They are adaptable to a wide range of water parameters, making them suitable for various tank setups. These snails are peaceful and compatible with most community aquariums, as they pose no threat to fish or other tank inhabitants.


The Ninja Star Snail's primary diet consists of algae and biofilm, making them effective cleaners for keeping your tank's surfaces clean and free of unsightly algae growth. They also consume leftover fish food, detritus, and decaying plant matter, assisting in maintaining water quality.


These snails prefer well-established aquariums with stable water conditions. Providing them with a diverse diet and a suitable substrate with smooth surfaces and hiding spots will ensure their overall well-being.


Please note that the Ninja Star Snail is sensitive to copper-based medications and high nitrate levels, so it is essential to monitor these factors in your aquarium. Additionally, they can be sensitive to sudden changes in water parameters, so it's advisable to acclimate them slowly to their new environment.


Add a touch of uniqueness and practicality to your aquarium with the captivating Ninja Star Snail. Watch them gracefully glide across surfaces while contributing to a cleaner and healthier aquatic environment.
