I love my 3 Mystery Snails! A black, Ivory, and I think a Blue. They are so cool and pretty

Also, I have some pics in my profile of them (can't post them on my phone) and I would love yalls help! I'm trying to decide if Magic (my largest baby) is in fact a Blue. She was labeled Blue, but she is an Olive color.

I've only owned Estabon (my golden Mystery Snail) for a week and already I can't think of how my 10g would be the way it was before! He is just hilarious, all over the place, going like a little rocket! For a snail, anyways aha. I can't get anything else for my 10g, but as soon as my QT is my tank for my new Betta I'm going out and getting another snail for that one! Possibly even going to breed them... Does anybody know how to tell the males from the females? I have no idea if Estabon is a boy or a girl XD

I love my "pest" snails! My tanks all have some assortment of Ponds (all named "Amy" - kudos to anyone who gets it) and MTS. My 15 gallon also has a rather old ramshorn that I've grown rather fond of - he doesn't do much, but he's rather comical anyways. They're almost as entertaining as the fish sometimes

Woot! Another Doctor Who fan! Didn't your jaw drop with the angel in the graveyard? I was so bummed!

Oh and did you see the Christmas special? That Clara has me curious.

lol I don't watch it much - studying and taking care of the fish and dog take up most of my free time - but I get enough of the plot to understand. My sister, however, will rattle off any obscure quote or factoid there is.

Amy Pond snails... Awsome I seen the snowmen episode too...very..odd.

I loves my snails. I have 2 rabbit snails, 1 nerite, and an army of trapdoor snails. I had a black mystery snail but he died. Maybe because his shell eroded to the point he couldnt close it, despite the fact that I had coral and seashells in the water to up the hardness for him. tried to give him calcuim too but didnt work

I worry about my mystery snail sometimes too and am obsessive over PH levels in my tank but my snail seems to be doing great and he eats like a pig and is pooping good as well. His shell is pretty healthy and I see new growth at the front so I am trying to load him with calcium to help it grow in nice and strong.

I'm also considering breeding mystery snails too now. Just need to figure out how to gender them. I assume Tesla was a boy since he was trying to mate with another snail in the tank when I grabbed him. He was trying to mount a female but having trouble because she was scooting around too much xD Poor fella. Some people say females seem to be bigger and males have two tubes, an air tube and breeding tube but I don't know how one can find or even see a breeding tube unless you have two snails together and one happens to be a male.

I love my snails.

From being laid:



To the hatchlings:


As they grew bigger:


And bigger!:



And again as adults:



And even when my other snails don't like each other:


But I like more than just apples

I like Nerites:


And trumpets!:


But not when they overrun my tank!:



Maybe not females who over do it....




Um... can I join?

OMG BABY MYSTERY SNAILS!!!!! SOOO CUTE

Was the mother a blue? Did you get any blues from that? Some of them almost seemed to have a purpleish hue, so pretty.
