Pond Snail Mix | Pomacea bridgesii | Not Hardy in the North
These pond snails are great at cleaning algae off of the sides of the pond, rocks and plants. They also eat hair algae. They will eat 5 times more algae than the Japanese Trapdoor Snails, but the downside is they are not hardy in cold climates and will not survive where ponds freeze over for the winter. They are safe with fish and plants, and are very peaceful. They will get quite large as adults, growing up to 3 inches in diameter! Pomacea bridgesii are much more active than other types of freshwater snails. They are constantly in search of food. They will climb up to the water line to breathe air. They have voracious appetites and grow very quickly if they are fed well; a young Pond Snail can double in size in a matter of weeks to months.
- Temperature: 68° - 85° F - Will not survive Northern Temperatures - Must be wintered indoors in an aquarium
