Snails & Molluscs
As well as plants we stock snails and mussels. Planorbis corneus (Ramshorn snails) eat algae from the side of the pond while Viviparus georgianus (Trapdoor snails) eat algae from the bottom. Mussels (we stock Swan mussels and Painters mussels) filter water and help keep a pond clear. We do not sell Stagnalis (the great pond snail) and recommend avoiding this species as they eat plants.
