Snails 3 of 3


I got an old iron bathtub from a friend and have turned it into a water garden!  I’ve got a white water lily, water hyacinth, and water lettuce.  I did my research, read about snails eating algae and got some at a local stream.

For the winter my snails and tender water plants will live in vases in the sunny window sills.  They seem to be doing well there ; )  They are fascinating creatures to observe!  Next year I’ll stock my bathtub with a betta fish (they eat mosquito larve) and get some pitcher plant, arum, etc…

What I hope my water garden will look like next year:
