Bumble bee snail??? To keep or not to keep

Recommended Posts

Today I went to the opening of a new fish store and saw some bumble bee snails that looked cool. I picked up 2 of them plus a few frags for my evo 12. After looking them up when I got home I’m wondering if I made a mistake. Anyone have experience with these guys? I have 3 astraea snails and one Halloween hermit plus 1 citrinis clown goby in my tank and a few corals. Used to have a couple of more fish but an ich outbreak got them 😢

I have them in both tanks and have had no issues at all. 😊

Thank you, I was just concerned because I saw they can eat other snails and may mess up the micro fauna in the sand

I don’t think I’ve ever seen mine in the sand once. They stay up under the rocks during the day.

So far the have mainly stayed on the glass but I do see them roaming a bit on the sand, they are very fast at getting around and very active. I will just keep an eye on them in case they start doing something bad
