I stuffed my tank with live plants and now the snails are super active. They climb all over them; so active! the plecos are super happy as well. I can't get them to eat all of an algae wafer now that the plants are in there. :P

My brother's golden mystery snail got pretty big until it got killed by his loches. I picked up a black one last weekend and named him Ninja lol. He avoids the back of the tank because of the Cory relay races. One of the cories already knocked him off the wall :/

That snail looked fairly similar to mine and she was marked as a Mystery, but will definitely keep this in mind. Is it a species thing all-around? Like, between flagellata and others for sizes?

well, it's like apple falls under the category. But since they're all similar, they just bunch them as mystery. There's olive, apple, branded, etc. Apple being brown, olive being golden, and branded looking...well...Idk I haven't seen a branded one at my pet stores yet.

apple = mystery.

I'm guessing you have a standard pomacea diffusa. They don't get much larger than gold ball size. If you had a cana complex, you could get up to a tennis ball in size. And then there are the Peruvian giants... Orange to grapefruit in size.

I have Pomacea diffusa (old name: Pomacea bridgesii), I refer Yo as my Golden Mystery Snail., Yes, I think there is a species that can grow extremely big, much larger than 2".

This is a great snail site:

These were all this big when I got them in the mail---> O and that was less then a month ago.






There are also these guys that have a similar looking shell but are a totally different species. They are only in this olive color and give brth to live young and get about 2-3 inches in size.
