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.

Multiplying snails
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.

Staple diet
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.

Frequent feedings
For optimum health, feed your aquatic invertebrates as much food as they will consume in 1-3 minutes, twice a day.

Ivory Mystery Snail is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for snail lovers I recently got a tank of fish and a mystery snail. I'm so glad that I have the snail to clean up the algae and everything from the tank itself. The snail I have is faster than I expected and pretty. I only got one because what I heard from other people is that they will reproduce often and you will end up with a bunch of snails. I am very happy with my mystery snail, and am glad I made the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast snail I went to Petsmart for another pet to add to my fish tank. When i seen the mystery snail he was climbing all over. I went to find a worker to get him and when we came back he was on the move across the tank. It was hilarious ! Who knew a snail could be so fast? I love having him in my tank, it’s entertaing.

Do ivory mystery snails do good with crown tail bettas?

Asked by: RobinHoodTheCrowmTailBett
Yes. Most snails do good with bettas. If your betta is particularly aggressive be careful when adding a snail to your tank though. Their shells are usually enough protection, but sometimes a betta may rip off an eye stalk if they get the chance are very aggressive. Monitor them carefully for the first few days after adding the snail to your tank.

Does this snail reproduce asexually? My current snail is leaving a white substance at the top of the water in my fish bowl and I was curious as to what it could be.

Asked by: ek19
Usually they dont. And when they lay a clutch of eggs, you know! They lay them out of the water on the glass at the top and they look like a big cluster of small eggs. They usually need a mate to reproduce though. So you would need two in order to have more..but i had two together for 6 plus months and never got any baby snails.

Can I put a mystery snail with my male betta in a 5.5 gallon tank?

Asked by: bluthebetta
I put my snail with my male beta in a smaller tank than yours and they did great together. My beta explored him for a few days and then left him be after that and could care less that it's in the tank with him.
