Popular amongst experienced and beginner aquarist. Mystery snails (Pomacea bridgesii and Pomacea diffusa) are some of the most liked freshwater snails. They enjoy tropical communities.

Blue Mystery snails are attractive as decorative additions. They can grow up to 5 cm (2 inches). Blue Mystery snail shells are impressive, calming light blue colours. It will vary from snail to snail. Their bodies are a darker blue.

Like Ramshorn snails, Mystery snails are not ones to cause harm within tanks. They are safe to keep together with plants and fish.

Common to Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia; they are found in rivers, swamps and ponds. Mystery snails differ from the Ramshorn with active and playful behaviour. If you have a sand substrate, they may burrow in the sand. They eat all kinds of algae, dead animal and plant matter. They are like your own underwater puppy.

These little critters (like the underwater puppies they resemble,) are keen on escaping. Use a fitted lid to ensure your snail does not crawl away. If you do have an escapee, they will retreat inside their shell and look dead. It is best not to throw them away, instead, put it back in its watery home. There is a high chance the snail will pop back out and be okay!

People still often lose snails to death too soon. One of the main reasons is the lack of calcium in the water. Since this is what makes up their shells, you need to consider what ways you are giving them calcium. They will also enjoy highly oxygenated and moderate moving waters.

Under a light the blue is translucent, it glows.
The are fully grown, about as big as a garden snail.
Their lil faces are gorgeous, with leopard spot patterns (bet each is unique).
The whole tank (40ltrs) is clean and looks like a beautiful river bank again.
Caveat: Also have 5 Ramshorn's, (3 blue mysteries) and loads of plants.
When you start this fishy stuff you have dreamy idea of how beautiful it will eventually be...right?
Snails help you get there! :)

Great wee snails!

Really cool snails probably around 2cm . Shipped well and arrived in great condition. Active members in the tank and great to watch. Very happy with purchase.

Blue Mystery Snail

My small community tank would not be the same without my three Mystery Snails. Their antics are quite comical, I especially like watching them 'surf' from the top of the tank to the bottom, it's like they have a parachute attached because they glide in slowmo. I have tried them with my bigger fish in my large community tank but, unfortunately, the Angels give them hard time nibbling at them so that they shut down and go into hibernation.
