Gold Mystery Snail


These large and striking snails are great for adding some colour to your aquarium, but they also serve some very useful purposes. They are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful.  These snails are quite large as adults, growing up to 3 inches in diameter!  Golden Mystery Snails' shells are a bright and cheery golden yellow colour.  Their bodies are pearly white with iridescent markings that are truly breathtaking when they catch the light.
 

Mystery Snails are generally much more active and display more playful behaviour than other types of freshwater snails.  They are almost constantly scaling the walls of the aquarium, extending their antennae in search of food.  They will climb up to the water line in to breathe air, so it's a good idea to make sure the water line in your aquarium isn't too high.  When a Mystery Snail reaches the top of a wall or structure, it will often let go of the wall and glide rapidly downward until it crashes into plants or into the substrate below, it is good to have a lidded aquarium or we also recommend trying out snail safe by glasgarten
