    Love these snails! I purchased three different packs for my fifty-five gallon aquarium. One pack was mixed, a Purple Albino and a Jade pack. All the snails became active the first day and are so fun to watch moving about. The only problem I have is keeping count on the herd to assure everyone is doing well! Great selection.

    First addition to NEW Aquarium

    Posted by Glenn on 25 Aug 2021

    I'm a new aquarist. Started with a 37-gallon kit from PetSmart. Mystery snails were the first live additions to the tank. And there was even a "baby" snail in the bag with five BEAUTIFUL adults. They've acclimated beautifully. Thanks.

    Thriving and happy

    Posted by Samantha on 2 Jun 2021

    Thankfully all of these guys arrived alive and only took a couple hours to adjust to their new tank. I am a little disappointed that some of them have some pitting in their shells. To my surprise they have grown substantially in the two weeks I’ve had them and are thriving in their tank. They could have come in a little better condition but overall I am happy.

    Shipping was fast and All of them arrived alive. They are eating algae and plant matter. They don't bother the fish and vice versa. They are active and the colors are great.
