Nice tank cleaner
This is my first snail ever, so far so good. Though, one of my guppies likes to pick on him time to time. He's a great addition to the tank.

I have three a Blue, a Black, and a Ivory but I only have one in each tank because I don't want them breeding. I haven’t had any trouble with them eating my live plants which is great. I would recommend them they are neat to watch and are pretty and active.

Here's the real story...
These are wonderful snails, and live for over a year and longer if you keep your tank cooler. Yes it is true that if you do not pay attention they CAN take over your tank. These mystery snails will lay their eggs above the water line, and sometimes possibly on the hood of the tank.
However, all you have to do is scrape out the eggs once they dry and throw them away. I learned the hard way because I felt bad killing the eggs, and I ended up with HUNDREDS of snails. I no longer feel bad.
I DO 100% suggest getting them for your tank as they are so much fun to watch when active, just pay attention and look for egg sacs.
