    Darn Great Snails

    Posted by Brett on 17th Aug 2020

    These were some darn good snails. Maybe not the sharpest snails I've had, one of them got himself stuck in my HOB filter intake (bless his soul) and is no longer with us. But all in all they came in a great variety, including some big gorgeous purple guys. I'll definitely be returning for my future snail needs.

    These are the best cleaners for a still water betta tank. Took them about 24 hrs to clear the tank up. Now I may have to actually feed them!

    This is my 2nd order of snails from Modern Aquarium & I am so happy with them!! Everyone has survived the trip both times I’ve ordered. The variety is beautiful and I just adore these little critters.

    Arrived safe and were very active the moment they went in the tank. Great at cleaning and babysitting the shrimp that ride on their backs. Majestic creatures!

    Great Mystery Snails

    Posted by Jill Jensen on 1st Jun 2020

    All my snails arrived quickly, well packaged and frisky. They were larger than I anticipated based on other purchases I have made from other sellers. I will order more Mystery Snails in the near future.

    Loving these little guys! They came hungry and have been cleaning my tank happily. Definitely fun to watch them and the acrobats they do in the tank. All seem very healthy and are active

    This group of snails were a great size, healthy, and took control of the algae problem immediately! Very active, fun to watch and a great quality snail (if that is a thing!) Thanks again!
