Fish Name: Great pond snail

Latin Name: Lymnaea stagnalis

Maximum Size: 8cm

Preferred Water Conditions: Will acclimatize to a wide range of conditions. pH: 6.5-8.0

Temperature: Cold water-temperate between 2-25 deg C (34-82 deg F)

Care: Great pond snails require very little care as they will find all the food they need naturally in an established pond.

They can breed in great numbers often their eggs can be seen on the stems and leaves of water plants. Many fish like carp will eat the eggs and small snails as part of there diet.

It is often believed that having snails in the pond will keep it clean, unfortunately this is not true.

While snails do eat a lot of plant matter that is considered waste they only recycle it and can do nothing to improve water clarity. Instead snails are just a good part of a healthy ecosystem.
