christinenha Posted September 12, 2015 Report Share Posted September 12, 2015 Hey guys, Awhile back, someone posted a picture of one of these tiny ramshorns and asked what they were. There was a big debate as many people claimed they were just baby ramshorns (the typical ones that grow to be about half an inch long) or pond snails, but they are not the normal ramshorns (different shell position) and definitely are not pond snails. I have them in several of my tanks and chimed in that they are a ramshorn species as they have the typical spiral shape and foot of a ramshorn but they are not the normal freshwater ramshorns we see because they only grow to about 3-4mm max. I posted a picture of the two from my tanks for comparison (mini ramshorn on left and regular baby ramshorn on right). However, I am unable to find ANY scientific information about them online. There is a post about them on another forum with a guess to what genus they belonged to and a repost of that same forum post on another website but no conclusive information. Does anyone know what the scientific name for them is? I was able to find a saltwater species that is similar (Skeneopsis planorbis), but I doubt they are the same species. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
