One main advantage of Mystery Snails is that they will not overpopulate your tank, much like many of the other aquarium snail species. These snails will only lay egg sacks above the water line and can easily be removed to keep them from hatching in your tank. Purple Mystery Snails require a good source of calcium in order to keep their shell healthy and growing thick. We offer our Mystery Snails constant access to a Cuttlebone to supplement the necessary calcium they need to grow.
Purple Mystery Snails are hardy little creatures, when you first receive them, they often will stay hidden in their shells, sometimes appearing lifeless for hours on end. Usually after a day of acclimating in a new tank they will begin exploring. Dead snails will not hide in their shells, they will hang lifeless out of it. It is never good to try and force a snail open or out of its shell. They can easily be injured in trying.
Beautiful snail, but weren't that vibrant purple no matter what I tried. Also they are less hardy then the popular yellow mystery snails.
Fast delivery and healthy plants
Service was super fast but my snail is more a black snail than purple bit disappointed
Purple deeeefinitely purple!
What cute little critters!
The two I purchased arrived safe and well. They hid for less than an hour before starting to explore the new tank.
The colour is becoming brighter since I got them two weeks ago and they have had a growth spurt!
Otherwise, for some reason they seem to like sleeping in the bubble stream!
