Painter Mussels - Molluscs
- Five mussels delivered to your door in container of freshwater
- Bi-valve pond dwellers that clean your pond naturally
- Feed on algae and decaying matter
- Attractive mussels, 10cm in length
- Use one mussel per square metre
Introduce this natural pond creature to your pond, a natural way of discouraging algae and keeping your pond clear. Painter Mussels, around 10cm in length, are light brown and move peacefully around your pond.
You receive five Painter Mussels, in a container of freshwater which you should introduce to your pond when it is populated with plants and established pond life like amphibians, pond snails and daphnia.
The mussels live on and around the pond floor where decaying and dead matter congregates overtime. The decaying matter makes ponds rich with nitrates which in turn encourages algae that makes ponds green.
The mussels keep the decaying matter down so that algae levels are down too. This makes your pond clear the natural way without you having to resort to chemicals. Adding these natural cleaners is great for wildlife gardeners and organic gardeners alike.See Full Description +
