Mystery Snails?

Ok I was planning to get a mystery snail but I don't know ANYTHING about it. Please tell me more like about its diet etc. I will have a betta with him/her.

They clean the tank pretty well but they are dirty little buggers. Some bettas will attack them though so make sure your betta wont bug them. I had two Mystery snails but they died when I moved them into another tank to see if they were causing issues in the betta tanks. =( They like their water to be the same as the bettas temp and give them hiding spots in the tank.

I bought algae wafers for the little guys and they ate them up like mad! but be careful you bettas might eat them too and get bloated like mine did. XD They also eat the food that the bettas leave behind.

Hope this helps some. <3 More peeps will add in their two sense in this too. =P

Beware of copper it will kill the snails fast also the batta will pick on the snail a bit. They do clean up well but should be feed mine like par boiled cucumbers skin off and spinach for calcium for shell froth this is important.

If feed mine cucumber becuase the bettas wont eat it. They can grow quite large. Mine are bigger then golf balls now
Also, if their shell is detoriating and feeding calcuim rich food dosent help - the water might be too..soft? Add in a cuttlebone. You can also use seashells/coral but add it in slowly. A random jump in PH/hardness wont be good for the betta
