Snails that thrive in coldwater?

cwfishy65

I wanted to know if there are any type of snails that will thrive in coldwater. I want something new for my tank that I will not breed incredibly fast and survive my two goldfish. Thanks

Pond snails

but your goldfish will likely eat them.....

I would recommend trapdoor snails. The adults should be too big for the goldfish to eat. They are commonly kept in ponds with goldfish and such.

I believe Ramshorns can also do cold water

May even slow down the breeding too..... I was told that MTS snails breed more in warmer waters so maybe that might be another option...... I know I had some MTS in my pond snail bowl that seemed okay with no filter and no heater.

Yes, Japanese trapdoor snails are pretty tough.

Ramshorn snails, pond snails, trapdoor snails, and maybe MTS.

Any snail would live in cold water, even mystery or apple snails. But the question is, which would live well in cold water with goldfish. The answer to that question is trapdoor or apple (cana) snails.
