Introducing our Blue Mystery Snails – the coolest addition to your aquarium crew! These little aquatic buddies bring a splash of serene blue to your tank, making every underwater adventure a soothing experience. With their mysterious gliding and gentle nature, these snails are like the chill guardians of your aquatic oasis.

Easily confused with the Illegal 'Apple snails' due to their shape, these little guys are a completely different species (Pomacea bridgesii)!

These Blue Mystery snails get larger (between 2- 3 inches), and are voracious algae and detritus eaters. They'll even attack hair algae!

So attractive and striking in the planted tank, these are completely peaceful little creatures, and will quickly clean up any waste left over by other inhabitants. They are shrimp safe.

Curiously, Mystery snails regularly make trips outside the water, using a 'Siphon' of sorts. Be sure to keep your water line a few inches from the edge of your tank to allow them to roam!

Cassandra's notes:

These little guys play such an important role in a balanced aquarium! They are nature's recyclers, and work tirelessly to scrub detritus, algae and fish poo from your tank.

Peaceful and easy- going, you may see them resting on green foliage in order to scrub away any algae or biofilms on the surface. 

These guys are undemanding, but would prefer a planted, community tank within normal parameters. They do like a bit of cuttlebone here and there to keep their shells hard and clear. Grab some of that here: Cuttlebone by Weight Keep your PH above 7, or their shells could begin to erode!

These snails may reproduce in a freshwater aquarium if you keep more than one together. They'll climb up above the surface of your water (keep a good lid), and lay a clutch of pearly eggs. Simply remove if you do not want more snails around.

If you do not see any visible algae anywhere in your aquarium, it would be pertinent to place a blanched piece of vegetable on the substrate every few days. Be sure to remove within the day, as you won't want to foul up your water! They will also happily accept little algae wafers (the kind advertised for bottom feeders such as Plecos)

Under 40F where you are? Don’t forget your HEAT PACK!

Snails arrived alive and were getting to work not long after putting them in the tank :^)

Happy little guy!

He arrived happy and more importantly healthy! He didn’t waste any time and started exploring his new home quickly!

arrived half dead

Not sure what happened. I acclimated him and put him in a corner under a plant where the other fish wouldn’t bother him but he just never came out. Third day i find his foot sticking out and won’t react to my touch at all. he’s just stuck in that position. doesn’t give off a smell (yet) but i’m pretty sure he’s dead. I honestly don’t know if it was the delayed shipping that stressed him or what. water parameters are all good. my advice would be to not order during the holidays. post office is backed up and i can’t help but feel like that could’ve had something to do with it. He was a really cute snail though. too bad i never saw him come out while he was alive.
