Ivory Mystery Snails | Pack of 5

Ivory Mystery Snails are an attractively colored variant of a fully aquatic mystery snail. They show predominantly light yellow and golden colors, interspersed with darker bronze hues. Like all snails, they have a spiral shell in either oblong or round shape. They grow to about 1 – 2 inches in diameter.

How to Care for Mystery Snails

Mystery snails, also known by their scientific name Pomacea Bridgesii, are very easy to take care of and will thrive in a wide range of environments. Provided with a proper environment, they practically take care of themselves. They prefer water temperatures from 70 F to 82.5 F and a pH of around 7 or above. They will thrive in aquariums of all sizes and will appreciate live aquarium plants in their habitat as well as hiding places provided by rocks, driftwood, and other aquarium decorations.  

Mystery Snails are primarily herbivorous and will actively graze on algae or decaying plant matter. If made available, they will also consume any remaining fish food. They are active throughout the day and watching them crawl on an aquarium glass, plants, rocks, or other decorations, scraping algae with their mouth, can be quite mesmerizing. The result of their activity is less algae, detritus, and other decaying matter in the aquarium. They are a perfect cleaning crew and are especially beneficial in a planted aquarium for their ability to remove algae.      

Mystery Snails are peaceful and will do well with most fish. However, they should not be housed with large and aggressive fish.

    Lovely Snails

    I bought 5 ivory mystery snails and received 6 ivory snails. All of them arrived alive and well with healthy shells. These were active right away when I added them to my tank after acclimating them (within an hour all of them were exploring my tank). I ordered a total of 15 mystery snails from here, received 16 snails, all alive and healthy, and no hitchhikers! All of the snails are good size. Shipping was fast. Definitely recommend purchasing from here.

    These little guys are awesome, right away they took off and were cleaning the tank. Not a lot of choices because I live in Az., but I am happy so far. Also bought Nerite snails not as fast but still doing a good job.

    In person they do dress up a tank. All five have been all over my tank and it started the moment I put them in. Kind of funny to look at the somehow get on my plants and then just fall to the surface and then just go on cleaning. Great price great stock.
