White Spotted Rabbit Snail (Tylomelania sp)
The White Spotted Rabbit Snail makes a great addition to an established community tank. These snails are very peaceful creatures and are not aggressive by any means. These snails appear very inquisitive about their surroundings. Rabbit Snails are very active both during the day and at night.
White Spotted Rabbit Snails are slow-moving and have a calm disposition; therefore, you should house them with other non-aggressive tank mates. They get along well with their kind and other snails, and they also get along with shrimp and catfish.
The White Spotted Rabbit Snail has a long dark greyish-black rabbit-like face with the floppy antennae looking like the ears on a rabbit, but it lacks the very long snout which looks like an elephants trunk.
Another rare feature of these snails is that their face has many expressions from smiling to wistful to prankish.
The White Spotted Rabbit snails shells are elongated and spiral-shaped and taper toward a point at the end, making the exterior resemble a unicorn horn.
Their shells' colour is usually black adorned with white spots and whitish shading towards the point, giving some areas a greyish colour appearance.

White Spotted Rabbit Snails are continually scavenging leftover food and vacuuming up detritus from the substrate. They also eat algae and plant matter which is usually plenty for them to survive on. However, it would help if you occasionally supplemented this with invertebrate pellets and
