Originating from Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos), the White Wizard Trapdoor Snail is a pretty new species in the aquarium hobby. Most Trapdoor Snails are captive-bred/farm raised these days but this one in particular is much harder to find. This incredible snail has a spiral like white-beige shell that can get up to 2" in length and about 1.5" wide. Trapdoors are a great addition to any aquarium or pond. Since its big and robust (and has an amazing protective 'trapdoor') you can put this animal with any bigger fish. As long as the snail is big enough not to fit in the predator's mouth, you should be ok. 
Since this snail can get pretty heavy we don't recommend adding it to a heavily planted tank with thin stemmed plants as it will lift them from the substrate or might break the stem trying to climb. 
These snails are extremely hardy and live in a vast variety of water parameters. Very slow moving gastropods, always hungry and that will grown in a heart-beat.

  • Great at consuming algae;
  • Active 24/7;
  • Very robust and heavy snail;
  • Very peaceful.
Trapdoor Snails eat a big variety of foods such as: 
  • Algae

love the White Wizards Trapdoor Snails

They arrived beautifully packed and clinging to each other. I wasn't sure if that was normal. Called AquaticMotiv and was reassured it wasn't unusual and to give them time. They were both wonderfully safe in my tank. The only thing I could suggest is a longer lasting heat pack. The pack had been activated but did not hold the heat as long as it should have. Not AquaticMotiv's fault that the heatpack wasn't top notch. I will be ordering more when the weather warms up. LOVE AquaticMotiv. The plants that came are all doing fantastic and look awesome. HUGE plus is that they were invasive snail free.
