Mystery Snails make a great addition to any tank 5 gallons and above. They're easy to care for and will eat algae and any uneaten food. This is a very peaceful snails that will get along well in any community tank. They need a diet rich in calcium to help their shell grow strong and healthy. This is easy to achieve through a varied diet. Mystery Snails do not eat live plants unless they are not fed enough food. They will however clean up any dead or dying plants. Mystery snails are a very active snail. Mystery snails will likely breed in your tank. Please make sure you have a plan for what to do with all the babies.
There are many foods they can eat. We feed blanched zucchini, spinach, green beans, algae wafer, repashy gel and weekly they get Calcium Chips. Calcium needs to be added to their diet.
The snails are predominantly fed our Snail food Pack diet to help give them strong healthy shells. We also feed Zucchini, green beans, occasionally algae wafers and bloodworms.
Most of the snails we sell are bred by us, but occasionally we ship some in from other breeders. Once the snails arrive they are quarantined with us for a minimum of 2 weeks before they go to their new homes.

Preparing for your snails.
The day your snails arrive prepare a small container with an inch of dechlorinated water in it. Allow it to reach room temperature. Carefully remove the snails from the cup and add them to the water.
Put the snails at one end of the container.
Once they've been in the water for 15-20 minutes they should start to wake up. Sometimes it can take up to several hours.
Add some food at the other end of the container. This will usually cause them to wake quicker as they're hungry after their journey.
Snails CANNOT be shipped to Hawaii.
