Sometimes referred to as the Apple Snail (although these are generally species that are much larger) the Albino Mystery Snail is popular among hobbyists for a variety of reasons. They are enjoyed for their algae eating abilities and also for the ease in which they can be bred but still contained. They are colorful, can be quite hardy and are excellent for keeping debris down in an active tank. Steer clear of soft or acidic water as it will pit your snails’ shells and cause health problems. It’s also very important to make sure your water line isn’t too high as these snails will extend their siphons above the water to breathe air. The female Gold Mystery Snail will lay their eggs on the glass above the water line; another good reason to leave some wiggle room. You will want to keep a lid on the tanks you have your Gold Mystery snails in and watch for them to climb out. They can survive for quite some time out of water but will dry out and die if not placed back in the tank. One of the nice things about Gold Mystery Snails is they have a hearty appetite and will dine quite readily on biofilm or algae in the tank as well as algae wafers and shrimp pellets. They are also happy to eat blanched vegetables such as kale, spinach or zucchini along with cucumber bits. They enjoy dead plant material and aren’t considered harmful to your living plants. They will eat excess fish food, performing a much needed action in many tanks. Though the Gold Mystery Snail will breed in freshwater their population is easy to control because their eggs are laid above the water line and if you have enough snails you can simply remove them. In addition, they are not asexual so you will need both a male and a female to get fertilized eggs.  They can lay as many as 100 eggs above the water line that will take two to three weeks to incubate. It is important if you wish for yours to breed that you have a lowered water line so they have area on the glass that they can lay their eggs. Once the eggs hatch some breeders recommend you section them off from the adults as they will irritate them by attaching to their shells and feeding on biofilm growing there. These snails are quite gentle and active. Do be careful with what fish you house them with, as they have been known to eat other fish eggs on occasion. Additionally, they are gentle enough that nippy shrimp can cause quite the problem. Small, live bearing shrimp and fish are generally acceptable when they share water parameters. Snails are particularly susceptible to coppers in the water so make sure your tap water is free of metals. Many medications marketed to treat sick fish also have copper in the ingredients and this can be lethal to your snails.

  1. okay? 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Sep 2019

    When the snails first arrived in the mail they were all alive, three out of the four were active and moving an hour after I put them in the tank. The next morning one of the snails had not moved from where it was placed and it was dead. The same was for some Jade Mystery snails I bought. This morning, out of the blue one had passed. Not sure if this is the fault of shipping issues (priority shipping), if they were sick when I bought them, or if this was coincidental. All the other snails I received are very healthy and very active.
