Malayian trumpet snail: Faunus ater "Capuccino" 

This attractive, about 6 cm long snail currently reached us from Indonesia. It is a relative of the well-known Malayian trumpet snail. In the wild this animal occurs in the lowest reaches of rivers on muddy bottoms and is thus very tolerant against salt. So it is possible to keep it in freshwater tanks as well as in brackish water aquaria.
 
In contrast to the Malayan trumpet snail, which is a live bearing species, Faunus ater is an egg layer. The larvae can develop in marine environment only, so it is impossible that an unwanted proliferation occurs in the tank. Males and females cannot be distinguished by external features. In nature, these snails feed probably on silt and mud. They do not work as algae-eaters, but need detritus and similar material for food.
 
For our customers: the snails have code 483638 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
 
Lexikon: Faunus: a Roman god, patron of farming and livestock; corresponding to the Greek Pan. It is not known, why this generic name was chosen. ater: Latin, means "black".
 
Suggestion of a common name: Cappucino snail
