These Purple 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, sometimes adults, and the size and color of each Mystery Snail MAY vary slightly batch to batch due to them being live creatures with their own unique hues, patterns, and personalities. They can range from a lighter purple to a darker blackish purple, or a dark burgundy-purple, and the color of their shell may look a different hue in different types of lighting as shown in the example 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.

Alive and Happy!

My purple mystery snail arrived safely. Packaged well and the acclimation instructions worked perfectly. It has been a week or so since my shelled one arrived. She is healthy, happy, eating well and very active. Thank you!

Disappointed

Snail was packaged well and shipping was fine. I am disappointed because there is not even a hue of purple. The snail I received is brown black.

Per customer service:
‚Äú The color of the purple mysteries may vary from batch to batch as stated, it can range from light purple to a darker burgundy or black/brownish-purple, they won't look exactly the same as the pictures due to them being live creatures with their own unique hues, patterns, and personalities, but their shell color might lighten or change in color as the snail grows bigger. The color of the snail also depends on your lighting, higher full spectrum lights with blue and red leds will highlight the purple colors in the shell better‚ÄĚ
