Mystery Snail Mix | Pomacea bridgesii | Not Hardy in the North
Mystery Snails are also known as Apple Snails.They are great at cleaning algae off of the sides of the pond, rocks and plants. They also eat hair algae. They are safe with fish and plants, and are very peaceful. They will get quite large as adults, growing up to 3 inches in diameter! Mystery Snails are much more active than other types of freshwater snails. They are constantly in search of food. They will climb up to the water line to breathe air. They have voracious appetites and grow very quickly if they are fed well; a young Pond Snail can double in size in a matter of weeks to months. They are not hardy in cold climates. Ours are Tank-bred in Florida, but are indigenous to South America. Where water temperatures fall below 65 degrees during the winter months, they must be moved indoors or they will perish in cold temperatures. Cold Climates Spring Shipping Only. Mystery Snails will eat leftover fish/invertebrate flakes and pellets and blanched vegetables such as zucchini, kale, spinach, or cucumber.
