Some varieties of Ramshorn snails are cold water and widely available.

Re: just out of curiousity... #6
Or if you can keep it in a reasonably warm room and have an anglepoise lamp above it for about 10 hours a day, what about a triops? (don't laugh they are fascinating in a horrible sort of way!)

Re: just out of curiousity... #8
I have read up on the triops and they really fascinate me, although, from all the sites i have looked at, i still dont know how long they should live, which is the only confusion i have.
