Let Pond Snails Clean Your Pond!!

Sorry! We no longer offer snails for sale

Great Pond Snails will be a great asset to your pond or cold water aquarium, as they will keep algae under control and will also eat other decaying matter and keep blanket weed down. No matter how severe your algae problem Lymnaea Stagnalis are the recognised ecologically safe way to control algae and rehabilitate your pool without chemicals. Great Pond Snails can live in and clean up pools that are too oxygen-poor for fish to survive. They are extremely hardy and can even cope if your pond freezes over during the UK winters! They breed approximately twice a year and can reach up to 60mm in length over a few years, depending on the size of your pond.

Our snails breed naturally in a long-established and self-sustaining garden pond that has been colonised by newts, frogs, insect life and (of course) snails. There are no sheep or other livestock in the neighbourhood to transmit liver-fluke to the snails

Lymnaea Stagnalis can reach ages of 6 or 7 years although not all will survive this long.

Your Great Pond Snails need no special care or attention, but should be released into your pond or aquarium as soon as possible after receipt. They may appear dormant on arrival but will soon recover fully and begin cleaning up algae and organic debris.
