Product description

3 LARGE (1/2 to 2+ inch) Black Mystery Snails (Algae Eaters) by Aquatic Arts

These large and colorful snails are great for adding some color and decoration to your aquarium, but they also serve some very useful purposes. They clean algae off of glass, plants, and decorations, they eat hair algae, and they keep your substrate clean and the correct color.

They are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful. Mystery Snails are quite large as adults, growing up to 2 inches in size. Black Mystery Snails range from a black to dark purple in color, sometimes featuring tan or gray stripes. Black snails are much more common, but there is a fair chance you will receive a purple one.

NOTE: If you search on the Internet for mystery snails, many results will state that these are the same species as Apple Snails. These are NOT Apple Snails, though they do resemble them in shape. Apple Snails are considered an invasive species and are illegal to own in the USA. Our Mystery Snails do not grow to the tremendous size that Apple Snails do (often as big as an apple).
 

Recommended Tank Parameters:
- PH level range: 7.6 to 8.4 
- Temperature range: 68 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit 
- Water type: Hard 

Recommended Aquatic Arts Tank Mates:
Other snails (Nerite snails, Mystery Snails, etc.), dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish. 

Additional Notes:
With mystery snails, it's a good idea to make sure the water line in your aquarium isn't too high, as these snails tend to climb up to the water line to breathe air. Other than algae and biofilm, they also eat fish or invertebrate pellets and blanched vegetables such as zucchini, kale, spinach, or cucumber. Snails are very sensitive to copper, so watch out for copper if you use tap water in your tank.
