 "My beautiful mystery snail arrived in perfect condition and is enjoying its new home! Will definitely be shopping for new plants for my tank now."
-Kelley

Introducing our vibrant Magenta Mystery Snails! These little guys are like a burst of fun in your aquarium. With their striking magenta shells, they'll add a pop of color to your underwater world while keeping your tank clean and lively.

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

These striking Magenta 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!

Magenta Mystery Snails

I was so surprised with how large they are. I was expecting something smaller so I was very pleased when they arrived. The color is beautiful. They make a great addition to my tanks.

Snail arrived alive and quickly went to work exploring and cleaning the tank. Live to watch it at work chomping away at algae on the glass. Very pleased with purchase. WDBWA

Went into the tank fine but started to float a few hours later. don’t know if it’s air stuck or he’s dead.
