Ramshorn Snail Experts Needed

Recommended Posts

Hello All! 

I have noticed on one of my high particulate tanks (minimal filtration) 270 gallon goldfish tanks my rams horns all have this side hole open but it isn't something I have really seen in the other tanks. It got me curious, do they/can they filter feed with this hole? or is it just a coincidence. I noticed pretty much all of them in the 270 doing this (that I could see) as they moved along the glass eating. I know for mystery snails its a breathing tub but that does not appear to be the case for the rams. 

Thanks! Disclaimer, not my photo, I was going to try and take one but I found one online that already had an arrow to the hole I was talking about.
