Freshwater mussels

Pond mussels are a unique and valuable addition to any pond. As members of the bivalve shellfish family, they act as natural filters; pumping water through their system, trapping algae and bacteria, contributing to improved water quality and a balanced pond environment

Simon van der Velde

One freshwater mussel purifies as much as 10 gallons of water per hour, filtering waste products such as algae and harmful bacteria from the water so that pond water remains clear and healthy.

Frequently asked questions about freshwater mussels

Pond Advice

Buy freshwater mussels at Vdvelde.com. In our aquatic plant nursery, we grow our freshwater mussels organically and environmentally consciously, making them an ideal and environmentally conscious asset for any pond.

You can simply place the clams in the pond. They may float at first because they need to acclimate. Give them a few days and they will naturally sink to the bottom where they will perform their filtering function.

This depends on the size of your pond and the concentration of algae present. For a pond with a volume of up to 2000 liters, an average of 10 pond mussels are required. These can collectively purify 500 - 2000 liters of water per day.

Freshwater mussels and pond plants complement each other in the pond ecosystem. Mussels filter suspended particles, while pond plants absorb nutrients that can cause algae blooms. This joint filtration process ensures clear and clean water. In addition, aquatic plants provide protection and hiding places for the mussels.

Mussels

Adding freshwater mussels to your pond can provide several benefits that contribute to a healthier and more balanced ecosystem. Freshwater mussels are excellent filter feeders capable of purifying large amounts of water by filtering out algae, bacteria and organic waste. This helps to make the water clearer and cleaner, improving overall water quality. Excessive algae growth can be a common problem in ponds. Freshwater mussels help reduce algae blooms by removing from the water the nutrients that algae need to grow.

Pond mussels from our own nursery

Our freshwater mussels are locally grown from our own nursery and carefully selected to bring you the best quality. By adding these eco-friendly aquatic animals to your pond, you are helping to control algae growth, improve water quality and support pond and garden biodiversity. Mussels are excellent filter feeders that absorb large amounts of water, efficiently removing algae, bacteria and organic waste. Moreover, they are easy to maintain and require no additional feeding, allowing you to spend more time enjoying the beautiful pond instead of cleaning it.

The function of freshwater mussels

Freshwater mussels in your pond are more than an aesthetic choice. They serve as a natural and environmentally friendly solution against algae, restoring the natural balance without negatively impacting the environment. They are easy to place in the pond and begin their filtering work immediately. By feeding on algae and organic matter, they minimize maintenance costs. Above all, they enrich biodiversity, giving your pond a more vibrant and healthy ecosystem.
