Mystery Snail is petstore code for 'we have no idea what kind it is'. Most Mystery Snails are Apple Snails. Apple Snails can grow as big as 6 inches and are one of the messiest to have. Most types tend to eat live plants and some kill other snails. Unlike most Snails, Apple Snails need a male and a female to breed. So if you have a male and female, expect tons of babies.
Also, expect to buy algae pellets for them to eat (the algae pellets alone are very messy), as they cannot survive on tank algae alone. They also enjoy lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, and most other veggies (remember to remove the veggies at the end of the day so they do not rot and mess with water quality).
I have a Golden Apple Snail and he is messier than my mom's four Common Goldfish.
