Faunus Black Devil Snail Requirements
What do you need to keep your Faunus snails happy and healthy?
Actually, not Very much!
Like some other snail species, Faunus likes to burrow from time to time. This means a sand substrate will be appreciated, although gravel will probably work too.

Interestingly, this snail is actually not strictly freshwater! If you’re setting up a brackish tank for peaceful fish like bumblebee gobies, you can consider Faunus. With this said Faunus will live happy in freshwater

Some people have reported that Like most snails they may enjoy eating plants as this is a natural food so may be best avoided in an aquascape.

Faunus tankmates
When it comes to tankmates, Faunus snails aren’t fussy. Avoid any nippy fish to damage the snails’ fragile antennae and even the tiniest shrimp will be left alone. Be sure to keep at least two of these snails, as they do love each others company. And no need to worry about snail babies!
