General Information

Mystery Snails are large snails (up to 2 inches) that work well in shrimp tanks.  They will not eat most plants and they will not overpopulate your tank as easily as Ramshorn, Malaysian Trumpet Snails, or Pond Snails can.  They are not a hermaphrodite snail so both males and females are required for breeding.  Additionally they need to lay their eggs above the water line so they can be easily removed or the water level can be kept high enough to prevent them from laying.


Mystery Snails are a large roundish shaped snail.  Their color is a combination of their shell color and their body (foot) color.

Snail Color Shell Color Body (Foot) Color
Golden Yellow Light
Ivory White Light
Blue White Dark
Purple Purple Dark
