Bladder Snails - Live Food for Pea Puffers

Bladder snails are a great addition to any aquarium. They offer a wide variety of benefits including glass and décor cleaning of algae and other debris, eating leftover food and waste from other aquarium inhabitants, turning the substrate, and plant cleaning. Other benefits of keeping snails are listed below. While snails are great for most aquarium, they can also serve another very useful purpose: live food. Fish like pea puffers need a live food source and baby bladder snails can be just that. 

You will receive 25 Bladder snails ranging in size from 0.1 inches to 0.25 inches in length.

  • Snails help keep a shrimp tank from re-cycling by providing an adequate bio-load
  • Eat left over food to prevent ammonia spikes
  • Hardy so they can adjust to most water parameters 
  • Great live food source for pea puffers and predatory fish 

When Receiving Snails: 

  1. Place the snails in a corner of the tank and make a mental note where they were place
  2. Watch the snails over 7 days, if they do not move remove them from the aquarium
  3. Give the snails a smell and if they stink, then they are dead
  4. If they do not smell, add them back to the aquarium and give it another 3 days
  5. It is common for snails to burrow into the substrate and disappear from sight

Please note: During shipping, snails sometimes go into a hibernation-like state and may not become fully active for up to a week once acclimated to your aquarium.

Bladder snails

Snails arrived in great shape--zero casualties. They are already reproducing and should provide tasty meals for my pea puffers for a long time.

Excellent service in every way

I love unboxing anything from Flip Aquatics because they pay special attention and detail to packaging and safety of the livestock. I received care instructions with a thank you card. The Swedish fish treat and sticker also made it fun! My three pea puffers are still going strong and looking beautiful. Highly satisfied.

In spite of my order being shipped somewhere else.. (I received them 4 days after they had be mailed) they were still alive... I definitely going to be reordering...

The snails were great!

They arrived nicely packed and all of them were alive when I opened the package. They shipped pretty quickly too. Very happy with flip aquatics
