Many fish keepers love mystery snails for their amazing variety of different colored shells and their strange, yet interesting antics. They are fascinating to watch as they come up for air and, best of all, they earn their keep by clearing up any rotting vegetation from your aquarium plants as well as algae from the glass.
Snails will adhere to the aquarium glass and crawl up the sides of the tank.
Snails readily reproduce in an aquarium environment.
Live aquatic plants arebeneficial for snails, which will graze on their leaves.
Snails can be kept in most tanks, but some gouramis, skunk loaches and other large fish may eat smaller snails.
Although snails will move along the surfaces of the aquarium scraping green algae with their mouths, they will also accept all kinds of commercial flake and pellet foods.
For optimum health, feed your aquatic invertebrates as much food as they will consume in 1-3 minutes, twice a day.
