Pusiostoma sp. ( Engina mendicaria)- Bumble Bee Snail

The Bumble Bee Snail is a distinctly small snail with yellowish bands on a dark brown background.

It is a beneficial snail to have in the aquarium, and will do well if provided with ample hiding places and room to roam. It prefers an aquarium with live rock so that it can graze on uneaten meaty foods and detritus. It is also a sand sifter so prefers an aquarium with a deep sand bed in which to forage. It requires high water quality and is sensitive to high levels of copper-based medications and will not tolerate high nitrate levels.

It is extremely difficult to breed in an aquarium, and has no distinguishing characteristics to help differentiate it from its mate.
