Mystery Snail advice

I don't know if this is the right section for chatiing about mystery snails but I have recently found myself buying a bunch of mystery snails and kind of prefer them over my betta fish, except the one betta I have who is gorgeous and has a great personality, but to me the snails are fun to watch and very easy going. Anyway I was at a pet store near me that had 6 mystery snails of various colors and I bought 4. I was thinking about going back for the last 2 so they had a home but I realized one of them is missing the point of the spiral on their shell.......will this heal or is he doomed? I was thinking about buying him to rehabilitate him if I could.

Also are there really albino mystery snails or are they just a different color foot? The ones I bought labeled albino do have a cool pigmentation to them but a couple I bought today with a darker brown with striped shell have an even more whiter foot with better pigmentation that looks more albino to me than the ones I bought listed as albino.

This website should answer all your questions and more... I used it frequently when I was keeping mystery snails. Good luck.

The Apple Snail (Ampullariidae) Website (incase it highlights the name... it is www. applesnail .net)
