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.
Better than expected, the purple is amazing and makes a tank. Will certainly get more to the collection.
