These striking Magenta Mystery Snails (Pomacea Bridgesii) are great for adding some color to your aquarium and 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: The snails you will receive are generally around marble size or lightly larger, sometimes adults and the size and color of each Mystery Snail MAY vary slightly from batch to batch due to them being live creatures with their own unique hues, patterns, and personalities. We cannot guarantee any of the snails will look exactly like the example pictures since each snail is unique! They can range from a lighter pinkish-purple to a light chestnuty pink, and the color of their shell may look a different hue in different types of lighting and may even change over time as they grow bigger depending on their diet and water conditions as shown below:
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.
I ordered one of these lovelies and it arrived today, safe and sound. What I wasn't expecting was how TINY this one is! Not even the size of a marble yet. Persephone was out of its shell and moving around within about 30 minutes. The water soaked towel with them was ice cold, but it didn't seem to hurt them, and I brought them in almost as soon as the postie sat them on the mat. They are joining my betta Hades, along with the first two snails in the tank, Styx and Charon.
Beautiful snail. The stripes are stunning against the white foot. It’s growing fast. There’s new growth on the shell after only 1 week. It arrived fast and was packaged well and was moving around the tank only a few minutes after I put it in. Very cool.
Both snails arrived quickly and are very active. They are bright colored magenta and so pretty!
These arrive quickly and I definitely love their color
