Jade Mystery Snails | Pack of 5

Jade Mystery Snails are attractively colored fully aquatic snails. Their predominant colors are yellow and gold sometimes intermixed with light hues of golden brown or light green. 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.

    This was a wonderful purchase for my 40 gallon tank. The snails arrived healthy and after a few hours in the tank they began foraging for food. From the 5 specimens collected their colors vary from bright yellow to slightly darker tones.

    Beautiful healthy snails!

    They're not as bright yellow as shown in the picture (mine are brown), but they are large, healthy, and beautiful snails nonetheless! None of the snails from my previous order survived transportation to where I live, but all of these 5 survived and were active when I opened the packaging. Highly recommend Modern Aquarium!

    Not the color I ordered
    Posted by Mary Ann on 1 Mar 2022

    While the snails arrived promptly and were immediately active, I am disappointed that they don’t resemble the bright yellow color of the ones I ordered! They are a drab brown.
