The common name Red-rimmed Melania comes from the show of reddish spots on the body. Usually, a female will drop 1 to 91 babies; however, large Malaysian Trumpet snail females can produce up to 200 plus, young snails. Definitely, this mollusk has many assets and is part of the "desirable" very sought after by aquarists!

Melanoides Tuberculata are avid consumers of algae and debris, especially debris that has fallen on and into the substrate. The presence of fertile males and the higher genetic diversity of bisexual populations are indicative of sexual reproduction. It can be challenging, practically impossible to differentiate males from females unless you are a professional biologist. The females are also larger than the males. Melanoides tuberculata (Miller), Las Moras Creek, Bracketville, Texas. Melanoides tuberculata. M. tuberculata reproduces mainly through apomictic parthenogenesis, ova being produced mitotically (Jacob, 1958; 1959). Malaysian Trumpet Snails are a peaceful, tropical freshwater species of aquarium snail.

New records of the introduced snail, Melanoides tuberculata (Mollusca: Thiaridae) in south Florida. Dundee 1974), probably through the aquarium trade. Melanoides tuberculata are concentrated in regions with moderate temperatures ranging from 21-30oC. 7 Mitchell, A.J., M.S. Lond.

Newborn juveniles are released from the edge of their mother’s mantle at a standard shell length of approximately 2.0 mm. The Malaysian Trumpet snail inhabits slow, stagnant water, and they thrive in regions impacted by humans. They are usually most active at night. General Information and Reproduction Information.

Malaysian Trumpet snails occupy a variety of habitats, ranging from weakly saline close to sea-level to the freshwater of higher altitudes. species is pseudo-rare in our 15-state study area, FWGNA Incidence rank I-2p. Contrary to common opinion, Malaysian Trumpet snails are NOT hermaphrodite (where each individual has both male and female organs). The analysis of size distribution of M. tuberculata in a release plot showed that maximum reproduction took place during the rainy season between June and November. At present, the species is established in almost all regions between Florida and northern Argentina, and the USA, including the West Indies, as well as Venezuela, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Peru, Brazil, and Paraguay. 1990. These snails are also found in Northern Australia, European Mediterranean countries and environments consisting of hot springs in Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. 1990.
