8+ Live *FRESHWATER MUSSELS* - Natural Fish Waste Removal For Koi Pond-Aquarium:
8 Live Freshwater Mussels! ( plus a few extras )
These are Lilliput and Paper Pondshell mussels, native from the Great Lakes to the Gulf Coast. Not a foreign or invasive species.
They are wonderful natural filters for an aquarium or koi pond! They remove bacteria and organic matter suspended in the water column just like your electric filter EXCEPT you never have to clean these guys!
Mussels live many years and filter water nearly 24 hours a day!
They will just burrow into your small gravel or sand and happily filter all day long!
See the pictures for an example of what they look like partially burrowed and filtering.
See the last picture for an example of their movement! They’re slow but they do get around! The lines in the picture are their trails in the sand.
These are not the type of mussels that adhere to things and clog filters or tank plumbing.
I can tailor your order to match the size of your tank or pond. Ones larger than a half dollar for large enclosures and smaller ones for smaller tanks. Just message me, otherwise you will receive an assortment of both large and small. None are bigger than about 4” in length, most are about 2” unless you request large ones in a “note to seller” at checkout.
Live delivery guaranteed!
** Effective December 9th, due to the increased volume of packages in the US mail system for the holidays, we will only ship Saturday-Tuesday. This helps guarantee their timely arrival so they don’t sit in your hometown post office over the weekend.**
Shipped fast and free with USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail.
Thanks for looking!
