These are some cute Pond Snails that have been happily living and breeding in my aquariums. They have beautiful shell colors; a mixture of black and metallic golds and coppers.
They spend their days grazing around the aquarium like tiny cows.
Many people refer to pond snails as “pest” snails. But I disagree! They help keep your aquarium clean and they won’t overpopulate unless you are feeding way too much food.
Living up to their name, Pond Snails can also live in your pond and are an ideal way to keep algae levels down.
Pond Snails pretty much take care of themselves as long as they’re in an established aquarium with plenty of food scraps for them to devour. Snello (snail jello) is a great food for any kind of snail, but is not required to keep these guys happy.
They prefer aquariums with a pH between 6.5 and 8. Above 7 is ideal because acidic water can degrade the shells of snails.
The perfect temperature is between 70 and 80 F, although they can tolerate temperatures well outside of this range.
Pond Snails stay small. Their maximum size is less than half an inch.
The snails will be shipped priority mail with a 2-4 day arrival time. They are carefully wrapped in damp paper towels and then gently tucked into an Eco friendly bio-degradable container, which is placed inside the shipping box with plenty of padding. I won’t ship below freezing temperatures.
No plastic is included with my shipping and all the materials are re-usable or bio-degradable.
With every shipment I will include a few extra snails in case some don’t make it.
If for some reason the snails are dead on arrival, send me a message with a photo within two hours and I will issue either a partial or full refund depending on how many were DOA.
The snails may rest in their shells for a few days after arriving. Unless they stink they are not dead!
Please send me a message if you have any questions or concerns!
