Purple Albino Mystery Snails | Pack of 5

Purple Albino Mystery Snails are an attractively colored variant of a fully aquatic mystery snail. Their predominant colors are light red, blue, yellow, and rose. 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.

    So far so good

    One came with a pretty decent sized crack in its shell. Almost like it had been dropped? Another its shell broke in transit but so far is fairing well. All 5 have pepped up nicely and have been exploring the tank.

    I bought 5 purple albino mystery snails and all of them arrived alive and well. These were the most active right away when I added them to my tank after acclimating them. 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.

    They arrived nicely packaged and healthy. They really are beautiful snails. All five were moving and eating within hours of following the directions that came with them. Very happy with them and will be ordering more.

    They were moving around same day I put them in the tank. I'm so happy with them I just ordered another 5 in different colors. They have done a great job at keeping my turtle tank clean!

    Love these snails. They were moving about within minutes. They are fairly large also. I only gave four stars because one was dead.

    Perfectly Purple
    Posted by Momo on 21 Jul 2022

    When I saw these online I wasn't sure they were real. LFS said they hadn't seen them on the market in years. Turns out he's full of it, I got 5 of these princely purples and I love them!! All were grape-sized and out of their shells within an hour of being in their tanks. They get along swimmingly with my community tanks and I'm hoping to get some eggs/babies so I can show snooty LFS what's up. I was surprised at how purple they really are once they've had a few days to really get acclimated and get their tums full of food, but each one is unique enough in color and pattern to tell from the others.
