Pond Snails - pack of 5

SKU: 5xSnails

Ramshorn snails (Planorbarius corneus) and Trapdoor snails (Viviparus viviparus)  are a great addition to the garden aquarium.


These snails eat pretty much every decayed plant, debris, as well as algae. Ramshorns tend to eat from the sides and Trapdoor snails from the bottom. They can be a perfect pond cleaner, as well as adding more life to your aquarium

Although most of them are small, some may reach a size of two and a half centimetres (one inch). They lay eggs in globules, which tend to be brownish in colour. The globules contain about a dozen or so eggs, though it can vary, they do tend to breed well in healthy enviroments.

We recomment 5 to 10 snails for the Iris, Lily and Lotus Garden Aquarium and you can add up to 20 in the Tancho, doubling these numbers for the double decker models.  


We will deliver Ramshorn snails (Planorbarius corneus) or Trapdoor snails (Viviparus viviparus) depending on availability.  If you are looking for a particular type please get in touch and we can check availability.


Our snails are delivered via royal mail, they hibernate during delivery and once in your aquarium will come out of their shell within a few days.


Only available in mainland UK.
