mystery snail

  1. I’m worried about my Mystery snail’s shell...

    Finless Friends
    I got these 2 mystery snails about a week ago and I’m noticing some change in their shells. Is this normal? I also can’t get them to intentionally eat anything I add to the tank (algae waters, cucumber) but they are eating the algae. They are in a 6.6 gallon tank with some shrimp and Endlers...
  2. Do Apple snails do okay by themselves?

    Finless Friends
    I’m setting up my 6 gallon planted tank, and getting an apple snail. I will also be either getting a betta or cherry shrimp in the future. Will the snail do by themselves, or should I get a second snail?
  3. 5 gal tanks and tankmates

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have my betta with a mystery snail in a 5 gal. They get along fine. But from reading after I did this, I got really nervous since mystery snails seem to need higher kH and gH than bettas. Or is there away around this problem, such as thru diet? Are there any possible fish tankmates that make...

    Other Fish
    I am having a hard time keeping my Mystery snails alive in my Glofish tank. The pet store told me they go well together but I am not so sure. I can't for the life of my figure this one out. Any ideas would be appreciated.

  6. Betta Too Aggressive for Snails?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have two fish. The first one, the one I consider non-aggressive and "clean" Yukine, and the second, his polar opposite Niji. Back in December, I purchased two black mystery snails. One of them went into Yukine's tank the other went into Niji's. The main reason why I bought them was because...
  7. Do you still think this is tail biting? New pics

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I posted a couple of weeks ago about how my betta's tail was decreasing in size and fraying, and I though it was fin rot. But my ammonia readings remained at 0 and I was doing regular water changes, so I didn't understand why I'd have a problem in my 5 gallon filtered, heated tank. Some users...
  8. ISO: Purple/Magenta Mystery Snail

    Betta Fish Marketplace
    Hello! I am looking for a purple/pink/magenta mystery snail. Does anyone have one available, or does anyone have breedings planned? I've searched all of the local fish stores to no avail, and the handful available on aquabid are being sold in multiples, which won't do since my tank is only five...

    I currently have a 2.5 gallon heavily planted tank with one male betta and a six gallon with a male betta and a mystery snail. I have noticed that the snail is being flipped onto its shell consistently. I have been flipping it over and am thinking about moving it to the 2.5. I just wanted to...
  10. Can't keep a snail alive

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello! I'm posting in this catagory because I want to figure out if there is anything wrong with my set-up. I recently bought a gold Mystery snail to help with algae control in my 5 gallon cycled tank. I had him only for a few days and acclimated him over the course of a few hours (trying to be...
  11. My snail has a broken shell- What should I do until I can get the silicone?

    Other Fish
    So, a few minutes ago, I was feeding my minnows, and noticed that my snail has a broken shell! This was likely caused by a decoration in the tank, which he had wedged himself between it and the glass. He was wedged for about a day, before I realized he was not just being lazy. His behavior is...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So... I noticed last night a tiny little snail in my glass bowl where I am holding 2 stems of growing anacharis...and not sure what to do with him! I am not going to put him in with one of the 3g tanks because of room and I don't want an explosion of snails. On the other hand ... I...
  13. Female mystery snail mating with other snails?

    Finless Friends
    Yes, hello! I'm bewwar, and, I was wondering if any of you had ever had a female snail try to mate with all other snails in the tank? She's a female, I believe... even though her name is Lucius. But it was only her and her friend, Heimdall. I think that she is a golden mystery snail, or Inca...

    Hey guys i have a 5 gallon tank that contains a male betta, ADF, and a mystery snail. Its the snails first day in tank and it has been in its shell all day.

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    Hello everyone! I haven't posted in awhile. After my very first betta, Flo, passed I bought another female crown tail, Violet. Luckily she hasn't had any problems. A couple weeks ago I bought my first male, Claude. Three days ago I noticed three white spots on Claude which were obviously ich...

  17. Mystery Snail and salt... oops... help

    Finless Friends
    So it didn't dawn on me until tonight that snails + salt = not good, and that in our current tank we do have a yellow mystery snail and there is some salt. We have been using salt due to the fact that one of our bettas is recovering from SBD and our other one's tail is healing... We have a...

  19. Sick Snail?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    (Sorry, this is not about my betta, who is doing great.) I have a mystery snail that I've had maybe two months. I feed him algae wafers, and he also eats some of the zucchini/cucumber that I feed my two oto catfish. Three days ago, I put a strawberry slice in the tank and he was interested in...
  20. Snails?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hey, Just a few questions about snails. I've never actually kept anything in a tank with bettas besides live plants. I'm thinking about getting snails for either some or all of my bettas (depending if they can handle having a tank mate) What varieties are good? I know many people have mystery...
