Trapdoor Snails can be added to any koi pond or large pond. The trapdoor snail is an aquatic snail.
Pond snails clean the bottom of the pond naturally by eating algae slime on rocks and at the bottom of the pond. They will also consume uneaten fish food.
Yes, trapdoor snails can be added to ponds with koi, goldfish, and larger ponds with bass, bluegill
Snails arrive in a bag with some water. Unlike fish, snails do not ship in a lot of water to prevent sloshing around and risking shells breaking.
Each snail is approximately 1.5- 2" in diameter. The outer shell is brown/black in color. Each snail is equipped with an operculum, or "trap door" that they use to cover the shell opening to protect themselves against predators. It is common for the snails to "close the door" when you open the package.
Pond snails can live 5-10 years in a pond.
We recommend 10 snails per 50 square feet of pond surface area for noticeable results
