Mystery Snail Care: Types, Lifespan, Food & More

The mystery snail (Pomacea bridgesii), with wiggling tails and eye-catching colors, is among the most charming freshwater creatures. Not only can you care for them easily and have fun observing their activities, but they also help keep your tank cleaner by eating algae, waste, and excess food off of plants and decorations. 

These freshwater snails are a great addition to any aquarium, especially popular for planted tanks and community tanks. 

In this section, we will cover everything about mystery snail care. What food to feed them? How big should their tank be, and for how long can they live in there? Find out what these little mollusks like best (or don’t) while trying to breed them or keep just one as a company at home.
