    Very happy with these little fellows. All 5 are active, appear to be healthy, and seem to be adjusting well.

    All arrived in great shape. Most were active within a few hours. The last one was active within 24 hours. Fascinating animals!

    I ordered the pack of 5 mystery snails

    All of them survived the shipping. And they are cleaning up the algae on the tank walls. Good for small tanks.

    Nice snails but shell chipped/broken

    Posted by Kate on 4 Feb 2022

    These are beautiful snails but they are smaller than I expected. They are about half an inch and I thought that most adults were 1 in to 2 in. Also one of the snails came with a broken shell that I needed to then repair with an egg shell.

    All five arrived alive! They began moving through the tank within a few hours and seem happy and healthy! Beautiful snails and I’m so happy to have received 4 variations in one group!

    All of the snails arrived in good shape and began moving around the tank. However in the morning several of them were not moving. I put them in another tank but they did not survive. The fish are fine but there must be some foreign substance in the tank that i deadly to the snails. I am having the water analyzed and doing large water changes. When I straighten out the problem I will probably order more snails. As I am happy with what I purchased.

    All 5 came and in good shape. They were crawling around in a couple of hours. They are really fun to watch.
