Description

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.

These snails arrived in great condition! They're a really nice size too, not like some listings that show adult sized animals but send you babies.
