  • Pet Pond Snail

    I've never cared for pond snails before but this pond snail rocks. I'm always rescuing this snail from the evil Endlers who is always trying eat it. I also feel bad for throwing three juvie assassin snails into the tank.

    Rescuing the good pond snail from the evil Endlers. Something sounds wrong with that

    I bet that thing is an amazing baby maker.

      What Rogue said that this a true pond snail and they dont breed fast unlike bladder snails. I'm thinking of transfering this snail into my shrimp tank

        Very nice!! They are also much better at eating algae IMO.

                I'm not a pro snail but I've never seen this size for a pond snail and it will get bigger. The best part, this snail was free!!!

                  If i remember right your's is called a giant pond snail... they get to about 2-3" (if i remeber right) my Walmart has a ton spread through out their tanks... i plan to go there soon and weed them out and I had a group of 5 in a tank by them selves and it took a couple months before I saw the first egg clutch....

                    I love these snails! I have a couple in my pond. Not sure if they are making it though the winter though.

                      How big did yours get Dill?

                      This pond snail is the only one in my tank and the rest are bladder snail. Fonze looks cool when the head is extended....he or she has two horns

                        My snails are about the size of ping pong balls. Maybe a little smaller. Then I have a trap door snail that's approaching tennis ball size!
