Japanese Trapdoor Snail  (Viviparus malleattus)

Japanese Trapdoor Snails are easy to care for and can live between 5-10 years. They are very colorful and have beautiful turquoise, brown, and cream colored shells. They are one of the few varieties of snail that can survive cold winters! 

They eat algae and do well in many ponds and tanks. 

They are also known as the Chinese Mystery Snail. 

Max size: 2”

Minimum tank size: 10 gallons

    This little critter arrived alive and well packed. He's currently happy and chill in his new space!

    Pretty Shell

    Posted by Jaimie Qua on 8th Jan 2020

    Another pretty snail! The shell on the one I received is a very pretty brown and turquoise. It’s a very pretty snail and looks healthy. It went to work right away cleaning my live plants, which is exactly what I wanted. I am very happy with this snail and the rest of my purchase.
