Husbandry

Micromelo guamensis (Quoy & Gaimard, 1825)

Micromelo guamensis, also known as Guam Paper Bubble. This snail feeds on cirratulinid polychaete worms. The toxins from these worms become incorporated into the snail's tissues and are then used for the bubble snail's own defense.

This species has a white shell with black to brownish wavy longitudinal bands.
