;D You had to ask didn't you! Well first of all they are from completely different families. Pond snails are Lymnaeidae and Bladder snails are Physidae. True pond snails have a shell opening pointing to the right while bladder snails point to the left. Pond snails have nearly transparent shells and get much larger than bladder snails. Bladder snails have brownish shells with spots on them. Bladder snails have thin, stringy antennae while pond snails have flat, triangle shaped antennae. Here's a picture that will help. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y109/prissmonster/aquaria/9e930a0b.jpg
