 "I got this snail as a tiny baby, and it went to work eating biofilm and algae in my tank. It grew so fast and beautiful and has a strong and healthy shell. I love it!"
-Rebecca


Golden Mystery Snails
– they're like a touch of sunshine in your aquarium! These little gems sport a radiant, shimmering gold hue that'll make your tank pop with color. Add some mystique to your aquatic world and let these snails bring their golden charm to your underwater paradise.

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

These striking 'Golden' 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!

So very cool

I’ve become obsessed with watching these little guys. My first golden was giant! My other snails just about idolize her. She’s alive & well it’s been over 2 months I believe.

Beautiful, active golden gems!

Love the golden mystery snails! They are so active and fun to watch...yes, they move that much!. My only concern was the length of shipping time, but they made it which is a testament to how they were packaged and their overall health!

Okay

I am not a fan of the packaging. Honestly amazed it was still alive. But the snail came out of the shell in a few minutes and seems to be doing fine.
