Description

Originating from Asia, the Trapdoor Snail is very common in the aquarium hobby. Most Trapdoor Snails are captive-bred/farm raised these days. This incredible snail has a spiral like brown-green shell that can get up to 2" in length and about 1.5" wide. Trapdoors are a great addition to any aquarium and ponds. 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.

  • Algae
