Support the natural environment within your garden pond with this pack of 5 mini trapdoor snails. Once introduced, the snails will get to work eating decayed plants, debris, and algae, ensuring that your pond thrives. It is important to make sure there are plenty of plants that can provide shade for the snails as they work.

These snails are ideal for adding to a pond so long as that pond does not contain any fish that might prey on them. They can also be a great addition to freshwater aquariums where they will help keep balance by recycling nutrients while cleaning up. If you are planning to add them to a freshwater aquarium, keep an eye out for the small brownish eggs as they can reproduce very quickly.

If you want to provide further nutrients for the snails, they can be fed spinach, green lettuce leaves, or thin slices of courgette.

Garden Wildlife makes every effort to ensure that the goods you ordered get to you undamaged and in a timely fashion.
