What are mystery snails?

Mystery snails are some of the most popular freshwater snails in the aquarium community. These gastropods are recognizable by their large, bright-colored shells and iridescent bodies, which immediately make a tank appear brighter and more colorful.

Many aquarists love to keep mystery snails because the species is excellent at cleaning up waste and excess food from the tank’s surface. Because mystery snails like to eat green algae, they’re perfect for tackling algae problems.

These freshwater creatures get along with other tank inhabitants easily. Mystery snails are a friendly and peaceful addition to tropical community tanks.
