Info

Chelidonura livida Yonow, 1994

This species is endemic in the Red Sea. It has special feeding requirements with poor suvival rates. To our knowledge there are no imports. It can be that the snails feed on Tubellaria like other Ch. species. Its easy to identify by its colours.

Ich halte diese Schnecke schon seit geraumer Zeit.
Sie wurde mit Lebenden Steinen eingeschleppt und wächst prächtig bei mir. Seit sie in meinem Becken lebt, habe ich keine Probleme mit Turbellarien mehr:)
