This bottom feeder breeds very fast in your aquarium and can help clean up. They are also used as feeders to some fish and puffers! These snails tend to stay small. These snails are commonly referred to as bladder snails or pond snails. They are grown in my aquariums and eat our Bottom Feeder Delight Food.

These snails will do great in aquariums bigger than 2.5 gallons and are easy to breed. Some snails may have some discoloration. After shipping allow 30 hours before snails begin to explore your aquarium.
- Snails will arrive in a 2oz Cup with a paper towel. Smell the inside of the container. If there is no rancid or rotting smell the snails should all be alive. A slight smell could mean there are some that didn't make the trip.
- Place snails and paper towel in your aquarium, we tend to send baby snails that may be smaller than .25" Also we recommend adding them to one corner of your aquarium to track if they move.

They were alive upon arrival. They have been eaten by our puffers😂
Live Pond/Bladder Snails
A few arrived dead but they repopulate so fast it doesn't really matter. My fault for choosing the 2nd fastest shipping and not getting the live animal shipping. They are fun to watch grow. They do breed fast so they could be a nuisance but my angelfish eats a lot of the small snails so I haven't had an issue yet. The smell of the dead ones are so bad so wear gloves when you first get them in case you touch a dead one. You'll know if its dead when you open it because of the odor. It took a lot of hand washing and vinegar to get the smell off my hands. They are cool little guys though and I'd buy them again if I needed to but I basically have an army now.
All 5 of the smails were shipped quickly accross several states and all 5 were alive and well within 12 hours thet adapted to my small tank and started doing their job great sellers smooth purchase!
