Ramshorn Snail (Planorbis corneus)
The Ramshorn snail is a small molluscs sometimes growing to 2.5cm. Their shell looks like a tight coil of rope and they vary in colour from translucent to shades of brown and depending of their diet even black. These snails will live of the sides of your pond and eat dead plants and algae, helping to keep you water clear and your ponds ecosystem working in harmony.
Perfect for any size pond from a patio tub style pond upwards.
When you receive your snails, please fill the tub with water from your pond and allow them to acclimatise to the water, they might need a little time to come to life so it is best to leave them for a couple of hours, remember to put the lid back on and make sure there are air holes. Any that have floated to the top are dead and need to be discarded, the rest can be carefully placed in the pond to get to work.
