Mystery Snails are very easy to care for and provide effortless algae-cleaning service for any aquarium. They will grow to about 1.5" - 2" in size. Mystery Snails will thrive in virtually every aquarium as not only great algae eaters, but also scavengers.

    These snails are very interesting to watch. They busily buzz around my 75 gallon planted tank. Make sure you have closed off escape routes out of your tank; l had two crawl out and end up on the floor. They make hard egg cases they deposit just above the water line. They are breeding like crazy. They have amazing sense of smell and hone it on food items readily. Enjoyable to watch. Would recommend to anyone with 20+ gallon tank.

    Shipped quickly, arrived safely and all snails are alive and appear healthy. I received a variety of sizes, much bigger than I was expecting which was so fun! These were a better price than I could find elsewhere too! Very satisfied!

    All five snails came alive and were up exploring within an hour or going into our tank! Shipping was fast and even with the hot temps, snails were healthy. Definitely recommend!

    Love the snails I got from Modern Aquarium! They're gorgeous, extremely active algae eaters and have helped keep the tank tidy. I was most surprised that they show personality. I'll often catch them "skydiving" off of tall plants or sides of the glass and gently gliding to the sand below.

    My snails arrived healthy and thick shelled ! I gotta say they DO NOT look like the picture . The shell is darker and they don’t have the beautiful thin stripe pattern. Nevertheless they are still purple and I love them, I got two big snails and 3 medium snails. The first day they didn’t move much but a few days later they are crawling all over the place doing their thing .
