If you're not sure which color Mystery Snail you want, or are not too particular about it, and just want some cute new inhabitants in your aquarium, then this Assorted Mystery Snail Package is perfect for you! You'll receive a random mix of whatever colored Mystery Snails we have available, and we guarantee you'll get at least 2-3 different colors!
Mystery Snails (Pomacea Bridgesii) are great at cleaning algae off of glass, plants, and decorations. They are able to co-habit well with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful. They will not eat live plants, only decaying or dying plants. These snails grow to 3 inches in diameter as adults!
Mystery Snails are generally much more active and have more "personality" than most other types of freshwater snails. They will often climb up to the water line to breathe air using their air tube (or "snorkel", as referred to by many hobbyists), so it's a good idea to make sure the water line in your aquarium isn't too high. When they reach adulthood, they may lay a clutch of eggs above the waterline, provided there are at least 2-3 inches of clearance between the top of the aquarium and the water-line.
To maintain optimum health, consider supplementing their diet with various vegetable or algae wafer supplements or Snello, and ensure that your water does not get below 7PH, as acidic water may start to corrode their shells. You can add crushed coral of calcium carbonate to your tank to naturally increase the PH of your water over time.
NOTE: Since this is a mystery package, we unfortunately cannot accommodate requests to be given certain colors or a certain ratio of colors, etc, but we will try our best to give as much variety as possible. However, in larger packages, you will likely receive multiples of the same color.
The snails you will receive will likely be juveniles that are generally around marble size or larger, or may even be adults. These snails can grow up to 3 inches and generally may have a higher bioload than other smaller snail species, so please ensure your tank has at least 2.5 gallons of water per full grown snail and to do frequent water changes.
